 Years ago, I got perturbed about the cost of expensive reagents. I found a
published way to recycle CsCl (now forgotten) and a way to make ATP in huge
quantities for next to no money. The problem was that nobody trusted my
products enough to even try them once. I used them myself. So make sure
there's an (internal) market for the recycled materials before you go to the
effort of cleaning them up.
