Eco-friendly Sanitary Pad disposal by PadCare Labs

Women in India generate 34 million sanitary napkins on a daily basis & it takes about 800 years to decompose the same. Consequently, women in India suffer from urinary tract infections due to improper disposal of sanitary napkins. However, PadCare Labs, a startup from Pune is solving this problem of menstrual waste management by building an eco-friendly, hygienic and cost-effective sanitary pad disposal solution for women.

Eco-Friendly Sanitary Pads Disposal System:

PadCare Labs is developing decentralized, instant, easy & economical sanitary napkin disposal machine, unlike traditional incinerators. World’s first smokeless sanitary pad disposal machine have been developed by PadCare Labs.

SaniBins

SaniBins, placed inside toilet cubicles have individual liners with a disinfection system that acts as a bacteria lock & prevents producing any bad odour. Users can dispose of their pads & bin can collect up to 30 pads. The liners holding the sanitary pads will be fed into SanEco.

SanEco

SanEco works on a chemical & mechanical disintegration method. It has a mechanical shredder to disintegrate pads into smaller pieces when pads that are fed into it. These pieces undergo a disinfection, decolourisation & deodorization process and then deactivated. The super-absorbent chemical from the pads is deactivated with the help of sodium polycarbonate. Then the pad material is broken down into cellulose & plastic pellets. The blood and other body fluids are removed completely. The cellulose produced during the process can be used to make paper & the plastic pellets can be used in manufacturing packaging material or construction material. The entire process is eco-friendly.
