Recycling and Energy Recovery from Incontinence Waste (Inkocycle): Anaerobic Treatment of Adults Diapers

S. Herbert, J. Heynemann, T. Luthardt-Behle, U. Theilen & H. Weigand
Due to the demographic change in Europe, the amount of incontinence waste is expected to increase drastically. In Germany, this waste stream is estimated as 200,000 metric tonnes per year. This study focused on the optimized energy recovery from incontinence waste using a combined approach of anaerobic digestion (AD) of the organics fraction followed by incineration of the digestate as refuse derived fuel (RDF). In a two years pilot test the AD resulted in 238...
