Solutions for dust and haul-road construction problems
Cypher Environmental engineers high-quality, environmentally friendly solutions for dust control, erosion control and soil stabilization. We specialize in developing long-lasting, highly concentrated, non-toxic and non-corrosive products that create efficiencies and cost savings for a variety of industries including mining, municipal projects and other industrial infrastructure applications. Our Dust Stop and EarthZyme® technologies are applicable using standard equipment found at any mine site and can be used to improve existing and new road infrastructure. Dust Stop is also widely used to “cap” tailings and stockpiles to prevent erosion from wind and rain while reducing dust. Cypher’s solutions offer lower life cycle costing than traditional methods. For example, where Dust Stop has been applied to roads to reduce dust emissions, mine water consumption for dust control has been reduced by as much as 85 percent and costs reduced accordingly due to less operational costs to maintain these roads. EarthZyme® is utilized to stabilize marginal clay-based materials to enable the construction of roads at a fraction of the cost of traditional road building materials and has proven to reduce rolling resistance, helping to improve fuel economy of haul trucks. Overall, these technologies offer unique solutions to road management.
