Unicharm chooses Diaper Recycling Technology
Monday, 12 June 2017

Diaper Recycling Technology team JAPAN - Diana Unicharm, part of the Unicharm Group in Japan, is to install new recycling operations from Diaper Recycling Technology to process factory waste and negating the need to this waste stream to landfill.

Over recent years the disposable hygiene industry has made headway in improving its environmental impacts, not only in raw material enhancements, but also in factory operation developments.

Working with Diaper Recycling Technology, Unicharm is making sustainability developments across its whole product lifecycle. This latest installation is noted as the biggest multinational corporation moving to the ‘latest generation’ of recycling technology.

Nguyen Ha Long, plant manager, Unicharm described the systems to be installed as “by far the most advanced recycling technology available on the market today.”

Martin Scaife, chief technology officer, Diaper Recycling Technology, added: “After an extensive R&D period our R&D and engineering teams are proud to roll-out the latest generation of low energy recycling technology. The newly developed airless technology is capable of recovering the clean QC reject waste stream contaminant free using only one tenth of the energy of conventional air assisted technology with the process requiring only one twentieth of the floor space of traditional technologies.

“Also of importance, the plastic streams are processed over 400 times significantly improving purity and allowing the re-use of the plastic stream in a multitude of other industries in the form of a standard PE/PP pellet mix. The SAP is removed without the need to pass it through buster or air transport fans, meaning the SAP can be recovered without compromising overall SAP quality.”

The newly developed technology is an environmental breakthrough for the hygiene industry eliminating the need for traditional landfill and incineration disposal methods. The significantly reduced operational costs of the new technology not only give customers a viable means to meet their environmental and CO2 emissions targets but also improves the financial and operating efficiencies of their factories.

Diaper Recycling Technology is available in capacities from 50kg per hour up to 1200kg per hour.
