At the end of 2020, Novis GmbH was awarded the contract for the project PAWN. It is funded by the EU under the Horizon 2020 - Fast Track to Innovation (FTI) program. Together with partners from Germany, the Czech Republic and Israel, a diaper made from renewable materials is brought to market maturity. The PAWN diaper is compostable. All parts that have been out of plastic – cuffs, closures, adhesives and the liquid-absorbing core made out of superabsorbents - are replaced by renewable components.
The project is linked to the EU's plans to reduce the consumption of plastics in Europe as much as possible. The project is worth 4 million euros.
As part of the project, Novis GmbH is responsible for the complete life cycle management of the ecological product, in particular for the successful composting of all parts of the diaper.
