Editorial: Filter media - now the strongest growth sector for nonwovens

published in Issue 98, 3rd quarter 2014  

Filter media represent the fastest growing application for nonwovens. The filtration industry has been greatly affected by changes in environmental legislation as governments worldwide face pressure to reduce levels of pollution. Transportation remains the biggest market for nonwoven filter media, where filters are employed to reduce contamination from fuels and oils. However, in the EU there is growing demand for nonwoven filter media in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications in order to provide higher indoor air quality - especially in view of an EU requirement that all new public buildings and all other new buildings be "nearly zero energy" by the end of 2018 and 2020 respectively. Furthermore, nonwovens are forecast to play an increasingly important role in the production of clean water from waste water as global water consumption increases. In this report, Robin Anson provides invaluable insight and analysis of the uses of nonwoven filter media. Also, he comments on developments in the industry and presents some key findings from the Filtrex 2014 conference which was held in Berlin, Germany, during October 2014.
