    It would be good to develop ways to remove any elements of value from sewage sludge and from landfills. Considering most of society’s byproducts goes to one of these two places, developing recovery processes would reduce waste volume and reclaim valuable elements for further use.

    Thanks for your comment, Justin. Now that we are aware of the finite nature of so many resources, it’s all about reusing and recycling.

    It’s a pretty high price to pay for anything. The gold is hopelessly contaminated with the pathogen that causes Alzheimer’s disease and other deadly neurological diseases. Decide for yourself. Melting it down will not phase all prions. So, maybe this isn’t the jack “pot.” http://crossbowcommunications.com/sewage-mismanagement-killing-millions-of-people-annually/
