Industrial Strength Opportunities
10:30 am – 12:00 pm
The Industrial Wiper Market – Growth & Opportunities
Rory Holmes, President, INDA
INDA is the leading source for reliable news and market data for the industrial wiper market. Learn
what has happened in North America over the last year and what the impact will be on the wiper
industry as a whole.
EPA Wiper Rule
Jessica Franken, Director of Government Affairs, INDA
After more than 25 years in the making, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency officials recently
announced they were “accelerating” the timeline for completing the long-standing industrial wipers rule
and are now aiming to publish a final regulation by summer 2012. If completed, the landscape could
change dramatically for disposable industrial wiper manufacturers. Learn what finalization of this rule
could mean for the industry and what, if anything, could delay or hinder any related benefits.
Worker Exposure to Metals in Laundered Shop Towels
Kimberly Dennis MacDougall, Research Scientist, Kimberly-Clark Corporation
A recently published risk assessment study found that laundered shop towels often contain heavy metal
residues, placing the workers, who handle them, at risk of exposure to ingested metals at levels that far
exceed health-based exposure guidelines set by the U.S. EPA, ATSDR and CalEPA. Disposable industrial
wipers provide a safe, effective means of removing this unnecessary exposure risk from the workplace.
Learn more about the metals, the model for exposure in the workplace and how the predicted intake
compares to published toxicity guidelines. Also, why it is important to understand more about where
these metals came from and why they are still there on “clean” shop towels after they’ve been laundered.
Lunch (on your own)
12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Coffee & Networking

change and convert risks into opportunities. Learn what European trends are likely to start popping up in
the U.S. market before long.

AGENDA: Wednesday, June 6
Coffee & Networking
8:30 am – 9:00 am
New Thinking 9:00 am – 11:00 am
Best Practices of Applying Design-Thinking to
Business Issues
Rob Wallace, Managing Partner, Wallace Church, Inc.
Design is too often thought of as an artifact, a noun, a result. In fact,
design in its most powerful form is actually a process, a verb, and a
way of making decisions. And this new problem-solving process is as
effective for design and branding-related issues as it is for virtually
every other complex business issue.
Edward Fabiszak, Vice-President-Sales & Marketing, Sussex IM, Inc.
This presentation will look at wipe packaging trends over the last
5-years. Sustainability and the 3-R’s (Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse)
will be discussed. “Reduce.” What progress has been made in
thin-gaging with reduced costs? “Recycle.” What is occurring with
recycling programs and adoption of recycled-resins and bio-resins?
“Reuse.” What are the emerging opportunities for brand-owners and
consumers, the untapped ‘R’?
You will learn how to incorporate design-thinking into:
u Targeting the richest new brand opportunities
u Building an integrated innovation team
u Ensuring the brand experience is relevant in all markets
u Extending the brand to new consumer targets
u Developing a “visual positioning statement” that streamlines all
efforts and synthesizes all brand communications
u Optimizing design thinking’s return on investment
Table-top Displays & Reception

global wipes’ marketplace.

Flushable & Non-Flushable Products Impact Report
Steve Ogle, Technical Director, INDA
Today around the world there are many questions about the future markets for flushable products.
Does the name “Flushable Products” mean the same to all stake holders? Does it matter? What are
the impacts on the industry by not having a clear understanding of this term? What is happening from a
legislative perspective on Flushable products from around the world? What have the studies told us about
what is in your sanitary sewer system? Is there a focus that will bring all the stakeholders together to
resolve this issue? These and many more questions will be addressed during this impact report so come
and hear where we are and what we are doing about it!
Effect of Non-Flushable Wipes on Wastewater Collection Systems and Pump
Robert Villee, Executive Director – Plainfield Area Regional Sewerage Authority & Chairman – Collection
Systems Committee, WEF
This presentation will discuss the impact of disposable wipe products that are not designed to be flushed,
but are, in wastewater collection systems. It will highlight the joint INDA/WEF field studies, and the
paradigm shift that occurred for both organizations as a result of what was learned. Additionally, current
efforts on labeling and public education will be covered.
Table-top Displays & Reception
5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

A Tale of Two Industries and Their Sustainable Futures?
Adrian Wilson, Editor, Sustainable Nonwovens Magazine
There has long been a recognizable divide between nonwovens that are used in disposable consumer
products – such as wipes – and those that play a more durable role elsewhere. Recent commercial
developments suggest this split is becoming increasingly more distinct. What implications does this have
in terms of market demands, product requirements and sustainability measures?
Potential Development of a New Cotton-based Antimicrobial Wipe
Brian Condon, Ph.D., Research Leader, SRRC-ARS-USDA
Learn about the benefits of greige cotton nonwovens versus bleached cotton nonwovens with regards to
adsorption of chemical additives. The research findings are expected to aid in the development of cottonbased antimicrobial wipes. The results, along with a few cotton-based experimental nonwoven fabrics,
will be presented.
Nonwoven Wipes: Skin Barrier Improvement Using Natural Jojoba Esters
Tiffany Oliphant, MS, CCRC, Clinical Services Manager, Floratech, Project Manager, Florachem
Clinical studies were conducted to demonstrate the benefits associated with incorporating hydrolyzed
jojoba esters into a variety of nonwoven wipe solutions including hydro-alcoholic, baby wipe, and nonalcohol based antimicrobial systems. Incorporation of hydrolyzed jojoba esters resulted in increased
skin hydration, increased consumer preference, and anti-irritation properties which include decreased
erythema and increased skin barrier function. Hydrolyzed jojoba esters have thus far been used in
various commercial cosmetic and personal care formulations.
Binder Technology for Wipes – The Challenges and the Successes
Maureen Nunn, Senior Technical Service Specialist, The Dow Chemical Company
The wipes market can be classified as personal care wipes, household and cleaning wipes, and industrial
cleaning wipes. In North America alone, the wipes market is projected to grow from $4.5 billion in
2009 to $5.5 billion in 2014. As wipe use has increased, the industry has been challenged to continually
improve product sustainability. Sustainability has many aspects for the nonwovens producers. Ultra-low
formaldehyde content in finished product is one way to improved sustainability. Alternatively another
route to sustainability is to develop a truly dispersible or “flushable” wipe. This presentation will present
ongoing progress on the development of ultra low formaldehyde binders for wipes and continued
progress towards the development of dispersible binder technology.
