Japan's Unicharm to sell recycled diapers in 2022

Initiative comes amid country's rapidly aging population and rising diaper use

Demand for adult diapers is increasing in Japan as the population ages.

TOKYO -- Unicharm, the world's third largest diaper maker, will turn used diapers into new ones which will come onto the market in 2022.

The Japanese company plans to introduce more than 10 facilities for diaper-to-diaper recycling by 2030, as it bolsters efforts to reduce waste.
