The Guardian: "First nappy recycling plant to open in UK"

Link to The Guardian

"Knowaste said the first site in West Bromwich will use state-of-the-art technology to recycle absorbent hygiene products (AHPs), sterilising and separating the materials to recover plastic and fibre that can then be used for making new products, such as roof tiles or plastic components and fibre based construction and commercial tubes. 

Roy Brown, chief executive officer of Knowaste, said: 
"This first site in West Bromwich represents the beginning of a £25m overall investment in the UK, that will produce capacity for handling about a fifth of the AHP waste stream - equating to a saving of 110,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions a year."
