Envirocomp: The World’s First Composting Solution for nappy, sanitary and incontinence waste

It is estimated that the UK produces over 600,000 tonnes of waste from Absorbent Hygiene Products (AHP) each year, including 400,000 tonnes of nappies, all of which currently goes to landfill. Local Authorities estimate this as representing between 2% and 4% of landfill volumes.

Envirocomp, at its plant in Rochester recycles all brands of disposable nappies, sanitary and incontinence products. The organic waste will be turned into compost for a range of agricultural purposes.
