The Future of Flushables?

Mr. Nataraj Gosavi, Director of Business for Ahlstrom Asia Pacific presented the Ahlstrom view of flushable product development and regulation.
Flushable wipes were getting some adverse publicity and the products were attracting regulatory attention

The Nonwoven Industry in the shape of a combined EDANA/INDA Taskforce was developing guidelines for development and test protocols

dispersibility of the wipes soon after flushing was the key to success... Ahlstrom had developed their own test method

...which showed their wet-laid, hydroentangled products to disperse at a rate between that of dry and moist toilet tissues.
