Sanitary Napkin Incinerators and recycled plastic building materials

Silmak Agencies's project deals with the protection of environment and the reduction of waste thanks to their sanitary napkins incinerators which reduce them into sterile ashes to diminish the risk for them to pollute the environment.

Overview of the project

We manufacture sanitary napkin incinerators which reduce one sanitary napkin to one gram of sterile ash. Research has shown that used sanitary napkins, many of which end up the environment, take 500 to 800 years to decompose.
