BIZARRE BRITS & BODY PARTS – FROM HIP JOINT TO STREET SIGN!
Are you thinking of donating your body parts? Well in England donating body parts now extends to the non biodegradable kind. This article reports on an English scheme whereby precious metals that survive the 1000 degree cremation process, are collected and sold on for recycling. Precious metal such as cobalt and titanium are on sold, with cobalt being used in aircraft parts and less precious metals, such as steel, from steel plates are used in street signs. The article reports that 75 tons of metal are recycled per year. I wonder if this scheme will gather momentum here?
