UK announces its first nappy recycling plant

By Jane Fazackarley     Feb 23, 2009 in Environment
A UK-based council has announced a new scheme to recycle disposable nappies and help the environment in the process. The plant is scheduled to be opened in 2010.
The recycling plant will be based in Birmingham and will cost around £12 million to build. The plant can recycle around 36,000 tonnes of disposable nappies (diapers) a year. The nappies will then be turned in to building materials such as roof tiles and other items including bicycle helmets as unlikely as that might sound.
They've also found a use for the sludge produced by the operation and this will be used for green energy.
