Ahlstrom Unveils Green Embroidery Backings

Finland-based Ahlstrom Corp. has developed a line of environmentally friendly nonwoven embroidery backing fabrics to meet the needs of eco-conscious customers. The company reports the fabrics meet the strictest international guidelines with regard to formaldehyde, are alkyl phenol ethoxylate-free and contain a significant percentage of post-consumer recycled fibers.

Available beginning first quarter 2009 as part of the company's Industrial Nonwovens product line, the fabrics will be sold through a select group of global distributors.

Ahlstrom has adopted the Global Reporting Initiative guidelines, which recognize and define corporate sustainability in terms of economic, social and environmental responsibility. The company monitors and works to reduce the impact of its operations on the environment, and also offers sustainable products throughout its product lines.
