Pune: Padcare Labs to install 40 collection units at Aundh ITI
They will be following an environmentally friendly way of disposal and also for this the company has set up a chain process where effective manners will be used to dispose of the waste of sanitary pads.
As the awareness is growing year by year regarding menstrual hygiene with easy availability of sanitary pads with not much high rates, the estimated ratio of sanitary pads generated are 8000 for 1000 women. From which around 1 million used sanitary pads are generated per month in India which makes an effective disposal a big challenge.
In today’s scenario disposal isn’t taken seriously by people as they are not aware about the harm the sanitary pads cause. These used pads are either disposed off in landfills or burned in an unscientific manner which is not the correct way to dispose of pads.For installation of the idea the Padcare labs have demonstrated their pad collection and processing units in the city. 40 collection units will be installed at ITI, Aundh. Also the collection will be monitored digitally.
Waste collector ‘sanibin’ will be installed in washrooms which can collect 30 pads for a month without emitting any foul odor or bacterial reactions. This bin can be emptied periodically. Waste collected will be sent for processing to ‘saneco’, it is a processor with capacity to churn 1500 pads and produce recyclable quality material.
Also now the company is moving forward to establish this idea in the country especially metro cities like Chennai.
