With every flush we deliver one more load to this amazing - and utterly critical - BONEYARD. See how we're keeping our heads above water (and worse) in this captivating episode.
- Scrap or treasure? What happens to materials once their useful life has ended?
- The ultimate waste has been transformed through technology to a prized resource.
- An innovative look at the ultimate in "reuse, recycle, reduce."
All creations, great or small, have a limited lifespan. BONEYARD is a visually captivating and richly informative new series from THE HISTORY CHANNEL® that uncovers the beneficial afterlife of our age's defunct technology. From trains to ships to demolition debris, learn the innovation, creativity and technical prowess that make waste useful again.
The end of the line, biologically speaking, is just the beginning of this amazing bio-BONEYARD.
Every day we produce millions of gallons of municipal sewage, once destined for oceans or other dumping grounds. But not only has that form of disposal become environmentally unsound, it is also a complete waste (pardon the pun) of material that, through modern technology, is now a valuable resource.
Visit the BONEYARD where this hazardous nuisance is transformed into a valuable asset. Then watch as agricultural wastes - which some farms produce in greater quantity than small cities! - are harvested for biofuels. Then discover how our cars and trucks can run on biofuels refined from animal and vegetable fats. And, finally, visit the most literal BONEYARD of them all: a facility where human bodies are used to advance the science of forensic anthropology.
Check your nose at the door and satisfy your curiosity about the BIOWASTE BONEYARD!
