From clean air to safe drinking water
Filtration is one of the most dynamic sectors for nonwovens. Thanks to their adaptability, these materials play an essential role in filtering both gases and liquids. Nonwovens can be used to improve indoor air quality and to provide safe drinking water by removing viruses and bacteria. They can even play a part in applications as diverse as blood dialysis, vacuum cleaning and oil filtration.
In future, nonwovens look set to become a vital tool in tackling major issues such as air pollution or stopping the spread of water-borne diseases.
