land of calcium carbonate

Ballparks, roadways, you name it.  If it's being reconstructed it just may use the solid waste from the nearby sugar refinery: calcium carbonate.  Usually piled high near the Arabi factory with a heavy equipment truck on top, the calcuim carbonate mounds make New Orleans' monkey hill look minature.  Recent projects have used the solid waste product to line ballparks and roadways and even patch driveways after water works repair.



What will they think of next?
