OUTSOURCED BUSINESS AND STORIES
 

Recycling… human hair!
 
I bet it is just a matter of time to see the creation of a RILEM Technical Committee to investigate the properties of human hair as a construction material! So far, it has been used in clean-up operations of sea waters after oil spillage. This is a wonderful initiative to collective it rather than throwing it away.
