Israeli develops diaper disposal unit

JERUSALEM, Dec. 23 (JTA) — An Israeli company has come up with a dapper solution to disposing soiled disposable diapers. The device, about the size of a laundry machine, washes away the baby’s waste, while working the remaining parts of the diaper into a condensed pulp about the size of a bottle cap. The machine was invented by a member of Kibbutz Afikim, and will be manufactured in a Yokne’am factory. Officials at the company that invested in the project, said hospitals, nursing homes, kindergartens and hotels have expressed interest in the product.
