FILTREX™ Europe highlights the bright future of nonwoven filter media
The 2019 FILTREX™ conference attracted key players from 48 different companies, with a focus on mobility, innovation in filter media and in media design, media converting technology and modelling and testing methods.
EDANA closed the 2019 FILTREX™ conference with thanks and satisfaction. “Perfect organisation, good quality presentations and long breaks to allow qualitative networking” highlighted Carsten Bräuer from TWE (Germany).
Organised in Berlin on 14-15 May 2019, delegates had the opportunity to hear leading spokespersons for the industry discuss the future of filtration for vehicles in the age of e-mobility, new developments in nonwoven media, media design and filter converting, as well as modelling and testing for the high performance requirements increasingly expected by the market
The second edition of the FILTREX™ Innovation Award, the only award recognizing innovation in the filtration industry, was also organised during the conference. Math2Market was rewarded by the industry for their GeoDict software. Votes were submitted confidentially by industry professionals attending FILTREX™ Europe.
Delegates could also benefit from multiple opportunities to meet and connect. “Great networking, ample time to meet the ‘movers and shakers’ in filtration” according to Duncan Gunn from Don & Low (United Kingdom). Bill Adams from Canfor Pulp in Canada mentioned the “good collaborative interaction between partners throughout the supply chain”.
“In today’s time of growing transparency and availability of data through sensors and IT technologies, the whole supply chain can more than ever benefit from such forums like FILTREX™ conferences to help building closer partnerships able to deliver the expected performance" said Pierre Wiertz, General Manager of EDANA.
Closing the conference, Dr Joerg Sievert, COO Freudenberg Filtration and Chair of the Filtration Working Group, said that FILTREX ™ remains THE place for filter makers to hear the latest development from nonwoven media suppliers, and it will be EDANA’s continued mission to communicate this.
