38: BHI Petrified Sawdust Stones

BHI Alchemists Convert Sawdust Into Petrified Building Stones
Typical Cedar Sawdust Delivery at the BHI Sawdust Pile
The Garden Raised Beds™ operation in Chatham delivers an enormous amount of white cedar sawdust directly to the BHI Sawdust Recycling Center in Leverett.  Although the BHI Cellulosic Biofuels™Lab uses large quantities, the sawdust continues to accumulate.  BHI Alchemists viewed the Cedar Sawdust pile as an opportunity to transmute sawdust into building stone that resembles native Goshen Stone (mica schist), by employing a proprietary petrification process.

BHI Sawdust Schist™
BHI Alchemists employed mineralized water, sodium silicate and a diluted acid to transform sawdust particles into a stone like substance by compressing the mixture into various stone form trays. The results yielded a building product that resembles mica schist as indicated in the test wall photo. Now, instead of waiting 400 million years for new stone, wall builders can call the Leverett BHI Sawdust Schist™ fulfillment  center.
