+ - Scientists turn used LCDs into medicine->

Submitted by schliz
schliz (994115) writes "Scientists from the University of York have come up with a new recycling technique that extracts PVA from used LCD panels to create a "a bioactive sponge". The technique could allow recovered PVA to be used in pills, wound dressings and tissue scaffolds that aid human tissue regeneration. It could also keep waste LCD screens from incineration or landfill altogether."
