High-quality secondary raw materials: the FaterSMART recycling process guarantees technical performance and sustainability, without compromise.
Raw material used to manufacture absorbent hygiene products is of a very high quality. Needless to say, the materials must ensure the best wearability possible in the most important moments of people’s lives and guarantee, at the same time, the best hygienic conditions. FaterSMART, conscious of the value included in single-use absorbent hygiene products, has developed a technology to give new life to the materials contained therein, guaranteeing their full sterilization whilst maintaining their technical performance.
What are the recovered materials? Cellulose, plastics, and a high-quality, superabsorbent polymer. 150 kg (330 lbs.) of cellulose, 75 kg (165 lbs.) of plastic, and 75 kg (165 lbs.) of superabsorbent polymer are recovered from each metric ton of such waste, and may be used in the main production processes currently using the same materials.
No more landfills or incinerators, thus, but the recovery of material which is given a new life and in turn gives birth to multiple social, economic, and environmental opportunities.
