Denmark has a disgusting problem. The waste produced by the country's 20 million pigs is slowly choking the environment—which has prompted a local company named Agroplast to devise a unique solution. Specifically, they have developed a means of processing animal waste (pig urine most notably) and transforming it into plastics that could be used in just about everything—including plastic dinnerware.
In fact, the folks at Agroplast claim that their chemicals can be utilized in other products like fertilizers, lotions, and as "a flavor enhancer in cigarettes." Sorry, but I'm going to pass on a ticket to that flavor country. [Agroplast via CNET]
