In the late 1900s, Ecobaby's customers were already leading the way

months, depending on conditions, and the amount of effort being put into the
supervision of the compost.
Then it was shown that Moltex Eco

in a municipal brown bin collection scheme. They were composted in a large capacity
system and the compost put to good use in land remediation.

Ecobaby has always supported innovation. In 2007, we recruited a qualified waste advisor
to undertake research into the composting of used Eco Nappies on a commercial
Composting of the used Eco Nappies was done at a licensed facility in the Irish Midlands.
Independent laboratory analysis of the
produced by this in-vessel system show
conclusively that it is good compost that is safe to use.
Some examples of composting methods used in dealing with Eco Nappies:
1. Home-scale Earthworm Composting of Eco Nappies
2. Commercial-Scale In-Vessel Composting of Eco Nappies (View photos on Ecobaby's Facebook page)
