Waste handling systems for hygiene product manufacturers

Valvan Baling systems is the preferred supplier for waste handling systems at several renowned hygiene product manufacturing companies.

One of the largest producers of hygiene products, such as diapers and feminine care, has built a new state-of-the-art plant. All the trim waste from the production lines is handled through a waste handling system, built and installed by Valvan Baling systems NV, in cooperation with our sister company Cretes NV.


The trim waste is taken straight from the different suction points on the production lines by a pneumatic transport system from Cretes and transported to the fully automatic Valvan C40 baling press. The press is equipped with a prepressing lid to pre-compact the very light materials before being pressed. Next, the non-woven and plastic waste is pressed in compact, heavy and easily stackable bales, which are transported to a plastics recycling company (

Both Valvan and Cretes have a long history and a lot of experience in building turnkey waste handling systems for hygiene, non-woven and technical textiles producers.

In line with our success in these sectors, we have recently also delivered very robust semi-automatic H40 baling presses to two production facilities of another important hygiene production company in Russia and Czech Republic. The presses are equipped with prepressing lid, tilting systems and feeding conveyors.
