PadCare Labs

PadCare is a leading clean-tech platform where we help organisations to achieve sustainable development, zero waste landfill and ESG goals while ensuring the health, hygiene and wellness of menstruators.

We have developed a chemo-mechanical process for sanitary pads recycling. Our patented 5D technology powers a machine that efficiently processes used pads, producing two valuable
outputs: wood pulp and plastic. The pulp is used in the paper and packaging industry and the plastic is made into granules and reintroduced to the ecosystem.

This process is entirely smoke and odor-free, making it a sustainable and hygienic solution for managing used sanitary pads.
