The Tokyo News reported that, considering the needs of the “silver society”, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism has planned a road map for the rushing of adult diapers, and plans to put this method of handling disposable diapers into practice this year to alleviate The workload of caregivers and other caregivers.
In the road map plan, the separation method will be adopted first, the urine will be separated by using the preparation, the separated urine will be washed into the sewer, and the diaper will be treated as conventional garbage; in the future, it is desirable to put the used diaper directly into the machine for crushing.
The “Can Wash Out Diapers” program was first proposed by a research group in December 2016. Last year, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism of Japan established a group of university professors, local officials and industry associations to develop specific measures.
Social welfare agencies took the lead in expressing their welcome. An elderly care facility in Nagoya, Japan, said that the diaper waste used by 20 inhabitants of the institution can be filled with three 90-liter garbage bags, which will make the burden on the staff.
Japan is accelerating its entry into a super ageing society, with more than 20% of the population ageing over 65%.
