PacSci-Doku: High Value Insulation

The Answer

The question in this edition is:

The next time you buy home insulation what might it contain?

The answer: Greenback

The U.S. government destroys 10 million pounds of greenbacks (paper money) each year. This once went to landfills, but in the last 20 years, much of this waste has been turned into compost for your garden and fuel for our power plants. The latest use for shredded greenbacks is to incorporate it into insulation for your home and office. Learn more about what will likely happen to that paper money currently in your billfold.
