From Components to Products: A Case for a Systems Approach to New Sustainable Disposable Absorbent Articles

Sustainability is a key global issue for the future. This issue especially affects the hygiene product market, where the focus is on disposable absorbent articles. Using the example of a baby diaper, we introduce the latest innovations in sustainable component development and explain how they can be practically employed in your product designs. The technologies used are based on biotransformation technology, which makes it possible to achieve more sustainable products by supporting recycling and providing an alternative route for non-recyclable/fugitive waste management.
