Disposable Nappies from Landfill to Fine Chemicals

Disposable nappies and absorbent hygiene products commonly end up in landfill where their component parts decompose over a timescale of hundreds of years. The aim of this study is to investigate alternative uses for the materials present in recycled single-use nappies and sanitary products by their conversion into value-added products.
