Recycling absorbent hygiene waste | The Future of Waste | Scoop.it

Relivit is an Australian firm developing a plant in Sydney using the US Knowaste technology for recycling disposable nappies, adult incontinence aids and female hygiene products. The plant will open in 2014.

 

The technology first sterilises the items with an autoclave, and then separates the products into softwood pulp fibre and plastics. Both can then be onsold for further manufacturing.
