Hog Manure = Asphalt

Hog manure.... stinks! I don't think of somebody who can stand the smell of a hog manure. From where I grew up, almost all family has its own backyard raised pigs. Over a period of time, some families have a small piggery where they raised 10 or less pigs. Without proper disposal, places where pigs were raised smell very awful. The good thing is bigger scale piggery business have proper waste disposal but still the same the hog manure stinks. Thankfully most of this piggeries are situation in a place where less people lives.

There is news that Innoventor (St. Louis, MO. engineering firm) have perfected the process of converting the animal waste (hog manure) into a bio-oil used in asphalt binder. Hog producers are optimistic that, if the project works, it will create an additional source of revenue while helping the environment.

Now if you smell something in the road.... that's it! It's the hog manure in the asphalt!
