The ANDRITZ Wetlacetechnology fulfills the highest environmental standards for the end products and produces certified nonwovens quality according to the latest EDANA/INDA guidelines for flushable wipes. Akinal Sentetik Tekstil is about to launch a new generation of flushable fabrics named BioFlush, which are dispersible and biodegradable, and is thus accessing new markets.
