INDA has announced that it will host the Tissue Engineering Research, Innovation and Science (RISE) conference on September 27-28, 2022 at North Carolina State University. More than 20 industry experts will present their views on how materials science innovation can create a more sustainable future for the nonwovens industry at the RISE conference.

Starting with the responsible sourcing of nonwovens and developing realistic options for end-of-life and cycleability, RISE focuses on reimagining, reusing, and recycling nonwovens and engineered materials at the Tully Student Union in Raleigh. Co-hosted by INDA and NC State University’s Nonwovens Institute, registration is open and the full program is available on the RISE website, according to an INDA press release.

INDA has announced that it will host the Tissue Engineering Research, Innovation and Science (RISE) conference on September 27-28, 2022 at North Carolina State University. More than 20 industry experts will present their views on how materials science innovation can create a more sustainable future for the nonwovens industry at the RISE conference.

Participants will learn what’s next with sessions on the following six topics: Towards a more circular industry; Expansion of sustainable resources; Development of natural fibers; Sustainable materials: fibers and bio-fibers; Waste not, want not, sustainable materials from waste; and economic insights and market intelligence. The 12th edition of RISE will bring together leaders in product development, materials science and emerging technologies to connect and convene the industry’s premier nonwovens science and technology conference.

Expert speakers will talk about the latest trends and innovations related to circularity, an important component of sustainability strategies that aims to return a product to the supply chain, rather than the landfill, after users have finished consuming it.

Brian Haynes, Sr. CTO, Global Nonwovens, Kimberly-Clark, will speak on “The Global Plastic Crisis: Who Will Be the Market Winner/Loser?”.

Jason Locklin, director of the University of Georgia’s New Materials Institute, and David Gravel, director of the Center for Bioplastics and Biocomposites, will speak on “Sustainable Fibers – Developments and the Future.”

Olaf Isele, Director of Strategic Product Development at Trace Femcare, will speak on the topic “Hemp is strong – how about you?”. Paul Latten, director of research and development and new business at Southeast Nonwovens, will speak on the topic “Natural fiber research in nonwovens”.

Heidi Beattie, Chief Executive Officer of Crown Abbey, will talk about the potential applications of non-woven fibers made from microbial cellulose. Takashi Owada, general manager of Teijin Frontier USA, will talk more about ultra-fine fibers made from recycled materials.

The event will also feature the presentation of the RISE Innovation Award, a special opportunity to tour the Nonwovens Institute’s state-of-the-art facilities by advance registration, and booth presentations by NC State University graduate students.
