The problem with disposable diapers is that they’re not really ‘disposable’ at all. In reality, single-use nappies end up almost exclusively in landfill, where they can take up to 500 years to degrade. LeafyLife is a new technology using an energy-efficient chemical process to turn dirty diapers into clean fuel. It relies on benign organic chemicals to safely break down diapers and sanitary pads, allowing them to be recycled into useful products. The fuel burns cleanly without producing carbon monoxide, smoke or soot, making it a healthier alternative for the thousands of households in Nairobi (and beyond) who are currently dependent on cheap fuels like firewood, paraffin and charcoal.
