One Man's Cow Poop is Another Man's House?

Manure, farm waste, cow poop. It's a waste issue for farmers that is increasing in cost. "A dairy farm can spend $200 per cow per year to handle its manure." Scientists are finding a new use for the stuff: making building products.

Researchers at Michigan State University and canadian cialis the U.S. Department of Agriculture have been testing different kinds of particleboard, fiberboard and extruded lumber made from manure. The waste is order generic levitra first processed in an "anaerobic digester" which breaks down the manure in a contained fashion. Methane gas and liquid fertilizer are the useful byproducts that come from this process, and now, the solid component is finding a use.

The product is being manufactured using processed, sterilized manure in place of wood chips. Combining the soft tab levitra material with resins and applying heat and pressure, as is done with the wood-based versions of these products, results in a board that has equal or better structural properties than the wood-based versions.

"It appears that the fibers interlock with each other better than wood," said Charles Gould at Michigan State's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources. "We end up with, I think, a superior material." (msnbc)

This is a literal example of a waste stream becoming a source of viagra 100 raw material for another process. We'll see if this becomes a viable commercial product or if the *ewwww* factor is just too much for consumers to bear.
