Thanks Sarah. DarkLord recently submitted a TriplePundit story about a company called KnoWaste in the UK that plans to recycle the most hazardous waste known to man...that's right babies poo.
The average baby goes through 5,000 dirty diapers by the time he or she is potty trained and they take about 500 years to decompose. KnoWaste claims they can remove 98% of a disposable diaper from the waste stream. The company plans to use the plastic in the diapers to make things like wallpaper, bicycle helmets and roofing tiles. But before they can get to the plastic they have to go through a shredder.
