Pig Poop Pavement

Missouri Company Converts Hog Manure Into Asphalt.

The AP (4/16) reports, “The outer road along Interstate 44 near Six Flags St. Louis is freshly paved – with asphalt made from recycled swine manure.” Two local companies, “road contractor Pace Construction Co. and the engineering firm Innoventor, joined together on the project,” which “is believed to be the first” of its kind. According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “Innoventor perfected the process of converting the animal waste into a bio-oil used in asphalt binder.”

    Do you need any more streets to do your research on? We are a private neighborhood in need of some desprite help to repave our streets.We just can’t seem to raise the money we need to resurface our streets. Thanks for your consideration.

    The University of Virginia is not the investigating institution. Please contact the Missouri firm Innoventor for more information or to volunteer your neighborhood. Thanks! – FOB
