How does Florida reduce the need for gypstacks? It starts with a study!
On the heels of a recent update in state law allowing the Florida Department of Transportation to study PG-use in road construction, preparations for a demonstration project are underway. State and federal policymakers have an opportunity to follow the science and make fact-based decisions about PG.
The project, a 2,000 foot test road built with a blend of PG and other commonly used aggregates, will help answer key questions about best practices for construction, material strength, and environmental protection.
In a recent Editorial, the Tampa Bay Times agrees that Florida should follow the science and proceed with the demonstration project.

It’s time to stop stacking phosphogypsum — and start recycling it!
