While water may seem like an answer to dust control, it’s not the best when considering long-term solutions. Dust control is something we’ve been dealing for years, decreasing visibility and causing havoc on ecosystems when a non-environmentally friendly solution is used. It can be a nightmare for companies trying to maintain their sites and can result in high costs for cleaning.
Applying water is the typical standard for stopping dust since the application of moisture helps dust particles stick together. It is, of course, a cheaper, more common and less mechanical option. But this only works for a few days before dust particles dry up and start to spread again, resulting in continuous time and resources to keep dust under control. Ultimately, it’s an ineffective and time-wasting solution. It’s also a waste of water resources, using an abhorrent amount over time in a world where freshwater resources are quickly descending.
When it comes down to it, you want to use a long-term solution. We offer Earthbind®100 as a solution! An environmentally-safe option, this modified biopolymer dust control agent was developed to stabilize road surfaces in multiple sectors (industrial, mining, military, private, etc.). It binds loose dust elements, strengthening soil and aggregate particles together, and prevents fugitive dust from circulating.
Earthbind®100 is an eco-friendly option, and we can ship it here in the U.S. To learn more about how you can purchase Earthbind®100, give our team a call today, and we’ll be happy to help!
