Avgol showcases biodegradable nonwovens technology to agriculture sector

Innovative solutions for sector showcased at World Ag Expo

Visitors to this year’s World Ag Expo can discover the latest work in biodegradation technology for polyolefin fibers and nonwoven fabrics, when Avgol® showcases its range of component nonwoven fabric solutions at the event.

Avgol, an Indorama Ventures company and global leader in the manufacture of high-performance nonwoven fabric solutions, is making its debut at the expo, which runs from February 8th-10th at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California, USA.

Nick Carter, Vice President, Nonwovens Marketing at Avgol, said the World Ag Expo is the ideal opportunity to meet with agricultural experts to discuss how the company has been developing technologies to reduce the negative environmental and financial effects of single use article fugitive waste in the sector.

“Today, sustainability no longer has a unified meaning in the industries we serve,” said Nick. “Working with our sister companies in Indorama, we have established our vision of innovating together for circular evolution. Our first major project is now addressing the need to achieve full biodegradation of our materials to help solve the issue of waste plastics that find their way into the environment, and the agricultural sector is in a prime position to benefit from these latest innovations.”

Visitors to the Avgol booth (#3222) will be able to speak with the nonwoven experts about the latest developments in biodegradable solutions that can help deliver performance while also meeting their own sustainability objectives.

“We will be discussing innovations such as biodegradable milking wipes for cows – hygienic wipes that quickly destroy or deactivate bacteria, viruses and fungi,” said Nick. “Our nonwoven fibers can also be used for crop cover and fruit protection, delivering a biodegradable solution to cover, bag and protect seeds, seedlings and seasonal crops.

“Not only that, but we’ll also be presenting our innovative horticultural ties on the booth,” said Nick. “These hook-and-loop fastening plant ties can be used for support, identification and the attachment of protective coverings – and are fully biodegradable.”

Nick and the Avgol team will be discussing the global challenge of eliminating incineration, chemical treatment, landfill, dumping and, in particular, fugitive material pollution from non-woven products.

“We will be sharing insight into our research and development strategy with World Ag Expo attendees,” said Nick. “We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to the booth and addressing the degradation performance of our products and the new technologies we are developing that present exciting opportunities on the path forward for the sector.”

World Ag Expo runs from 8 – 10 February 2022 at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California, USA. For more information on Avgol, speak with the team at booth #3222 or visit www.avgol.com.
