I want make Sanitary napkin destroyer/babies diaper ? Answered

1.I have napkin incinerator but it is not much pollution free machine 
2.And I have to make a diaper destroyer machine also
3. My current own machine have 2000w so babies diaper have more stuff so it not able to burn properly  
4. Please help me to upgrade or any new idea to make a napkin and diaper destroyer

By the way, have you tried microwaves?


Because, I dunno, sometimes interesting things happen under the influence of microwave radiation. Just ask Jory Caron.

There are Wikipedia articles for both "Incineration" and "Waste-to-Energy", and these are both relevant to your topic.

So from a wide perspective, I think that is kind of where your machine fits, broadly, in the set of all machines, or inventions, that do something useful.

What is more ambitious, is that you guys,


(That's you, right?)

want to make it a table top sized appliance, that any idiot can use, essentially.

I mean there are people who have tried to do the same thing, only on a factory sized scale, and failed, in spite of throwing millions of dollars, for process equipment, and the salaries of skilled chemical engineers and technicians.

As an example, there was this guy, Brian Appel, who wanted to build a process for reclaiming energy from garbage, specifically from wet garbage or biomass.



Building an process to extract energy from dry garbage or biomass, that's relatively easy, because that kind of material, dry material, is usually easy to burn.

However that is not the case for wet biomass. From a chemical engineering perspective, it takes energy to drive the water out of things; e.g. to make wet wood into dry wood, or wet manure into dry, etc. (Roughly, 44 kJ/mol or 2400 kJ/kg. It might a little more for chemically bound water, like water bound into the water absorbing polymers they put in diapers and sanitary napkins.)Thus a process of, "dry it, then burn it", becomes uneconomic, because even though you can get energy from burning the dry material, that energy might not be enough to cover the energy input needed for the drying step.

So the genius of Appel's invention, was that he came up with something that could skip the drying step. It was kind of like wet pyrolysis, if you can imagine such a thing. The reaction happened at high temperature and pressure, and also aqueous, wet.

And the claim was the product of this reaction was hydrocarbons, something akin to oil, which probably helped to separate this product from the remaining unreacted water, because, you know, oil and water will often just separate themselves; i.e the oil floats to the top and you can just skim it off.

Anyway, the concept was sexy! It was supposed to be able to make oil from a variety of different kinds of garbage, like sewage, wet biomass, waste plastics. The pilot plant was feed with turkey offal, from a neighboring turkey slaughtering plant.

But something went wrong with the pilot plant. In particular there was this awful smell in the waste gases, and the neighbors complained, loudly. People even complained the gases were making them sick, and as a consequence of this, the company went out of business, I think.

Their old web site, www.changingworldtech.com, has a "buy this domain" message on it currently.

The story of Brian Appel and CWT might seem like kind of a diversion, but maybe relevant since his process was for wet, stinky, garbage, which seems to be similar to your problem.

On the subject of small, table top sized, machines, there was this guy, Akinori Ito, who actually built table top sized pyrolysis machines for depolymerizing certain kinds of (dry) recylclable plastic (PE and PP, I think) into hydrocarbons (oil and gas).

A few years ago there were some news stories, and a few youtube videos. I think that company, Blest(r), met with more success, or maybe less failure, than CWT, although Mr Ito's table top plastic-to-oil appliances are not yet in every household, like the way coffee machines are. (and that kind of reminds me of the fictional, "Mr Fusion(r)" appliance, from the old "Back to the Future" movie franchise.)
