What is the problem with the SAP commonly used in diapers?
Whereas most components of diapers have a compostable alternative, the absorbent core at the heart of the diaper is made from a polluting super absorbent plastic called polyacrylate.
There is no eco-friendly alternative to polyacrylate that has comparable functional performance and economic viability.
This is why, since the introduction of disposable diapers several decades ago, a fully compostable
diaper has never been developed.
It is widely believed that once a compostable diaper emerges, it will be driven to market dominance
by regulation and by customer demand.
