Kimberly-Clark launches innovative Australian-first nappy recycling trial

MILLICENT, Australia , December 7, 2022-

Kimberly-Clark, the maker of Huggies nappies, today announces a new nappy recycling trial that could be Australia’s answer to the 1.5 billion disposable nappies that end up in landfill each year. With approximately 300,000 babies born in Australia every year, and about 95% of them wearing disposable nappies, the trial represents a step forward for the nappy industry.

The first trial of its kind in Australia, The Nappy Loop has been underway in South Australia since July 2022 and uses anaerobic digestion to turn the organic materials in used Huggies nappies into nutrient-rich compost, as well as bioenergy that is captured and used to power the recycling process.
