The award recognizes the newly developed Danufil QR fibre, a positively charged viscose fibre, that was specifically designed for use in disinfectant wipes: Danufil QR is the only viscose fibre worldwide that – in contrast to standard viscose fibres – binds less than 10 percent of “quats” (quarternary ammonium compounds), so that this common disinfectant can release its intended effect in the wipe. Danufil QR fibres are completely made of renewable cellulose and therefore fully biodegradable. They can be easily processed with all nonwovens technologies.

The WoW Innovation Award

The annually presented WoW Innovation Award honours products that both expand the use of nonwovens and demonstrate creativity, uniqueness, and technical sophistication. The unique thing about the award: One third of the votes comes directly from the WOW attendees.

Matthew North, Commercial Director at Kelheim Fibres:

“Product innovations have a right to exist only if they work in practice and if they create added value. Therefore, we are particularly pleased about this approval from the industry.”
