Lignin Sulfonate has long been recognized as an effective dust control agent for unpaved roads. Lignin is a co-product of the paper industry and is the “glue” that holds cellulose fibers together in trees. Lignin is extracted from wood during the pulping process, which makes lignin soluble in water. The adhesive properties of lignin make it an effective dust control solution. Lignin is typically diluted with water prior to application. Most applications require about half a gallon of lignin concentrate per square yard. We can ship lignin for dust control anywhere in the U.S. via LTL, truckload, or railcar. If you have your own equipment, you can pick-up lignin at our facility in Portland, Oregon.
