First 'Knowaste' Diaper Recycling Plant Opens in the UK

The first site in West Bromwich will use state-of-the-art technology to recycle AHPs. The £25 million overall investment will produce capacity for handling about a fifth of the AHP waste stream – equating to a saving of 110,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year. Operators, at first will collect AHP waste from washrooms, hospitals, nursing facilities and child care nurseries but Knowaste was also working with local authorities and their waste contractors to recycle domestic AHP waste in the future.
