About 260 crematoriums in Britain have signed up to contribute to this scheme
BRITAIN: Metal from cremated bodies is being sold off and henceforth recycled to make road signs, spare car parts and aircraft engines.
Dutch company OrthoMetals which has come up with this novel recycling idea and are generating 75 tonnes metal every year. The company officials told Daily Mail that half of Britain’s 260 crematoriums have signed up to contribute to this scheme.
The firm is recycling metal plates used to make false teeth as well as old fillings. They are not even sparing the metal fittings on coffins. However, they do take the permission from family members before recycling.
The precious metals like titatnium that can withstand high temperatures in furnace, are sold to the automobile and aeronautical industries.
It is understood to be one of the growing trends in Britain and Europe.
