The fact that sustainability is also playing an increasingly important role in the personal hygiene sector is well known by now - as is the fact that there are several ways to make hygiene products more sustainable. After diving deeper into the topics of sustainable design of hygiene products and the use of natural materials in the production of sustainable hygiene products, we now focus on sustainable production processes. The manufacturing process plays an important role in achieving sustainability goals.
We all benefit from a more sustainable production process: our customers, consumers, and the environment alike. And there are several areas in which the production processes offer potential for improvement:
- Carbon footprint: Optimization and reduction of both energy usage and CO2 emissions are crucial to move towards more sustainable operations
- Resource efficiency: "More with less" and a conscious use of the world's limited resources are key aspects
- Waste reduction: First target is to reduce waste in production processes. Thereafter a second life for the waste generated should be a clear mission.
No matter whether production of baby diapers, femcare or adult incontinence products: The choice of the right adhesives can have a significant positive impact on processes and production conditions!
