Discover has an article about a newly perfected technology that can make discarded turkey offal into heating oil. Plus, the same process can be used to turn leftover PVC into hydrochloric acid (which has industrial applications), whereas burning it in a municipal incinerator would have created dioxin.

The part of me interested in recycling and sustainable living says, "yay!" - but the part of me who used to be vegan is slightly disturbed and can't help but think of the movie Delicatessen.
