Hygiene Products Improve our Customers’ Lives, but we Cannot Ignore their Footprint

Reducing the carbon footprint of nonwoven products is the challenge for the hygiene industry. For example, disposable diapers are typically made from a combination of fossil-based materials, including plastic, which is derived from petroleum, and wood pulp, which is processed using fossil fuels. This is why we need to act now. And minimize our dependence on fossil-based materials.

Technomelt DM ECO enables hygiene manufacturers to achieve their sustainability goals while meeting the highest regulatory and end-user requirements.

Technomelt DM ECO allows you to verifiably reach your sustainability goals while meeting the highest regulatory and end-user requirements.

The implementation of new, more sustainable materials in the hygiene industry often requires changes to the production process, which can be challenging. Technomelt DM ECO enables the seamless integration into your production process.

But it’s not just about processes - ultimately, it's about people. Because we touch their lives every day with our products.
