durablend-C™ at Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge – Reducing Chlorides and Tradeoffs

The topic of how to treat areas with unique or highly sensitive ecological needs has been long standing within dust control markets. The days of using things like waste oil to treat roads are long gone, and the vast majority of vetted products present very little risk to the environments they enter. Still, there are outlying areas that cannot tolerate chlorides at any significant level. Places like the Squaw Creek National Wildlife Refuge, which have precious and biologically diverse wetlands to preserve.

And although places like Squaw Creek have a growing number of chloride free products to choose from – the issue is not so easily settled. Why? Because many of these products simply do not perform. Just like calorie free sweeteners or soy based veggie burgers, it can be hard to remove an element or ingredient and still get the punch we want. It is the classic consumer tradeoff that good product developers constantly look to close. durablend-C™ is EnviroTech’s latest step forward in this quest.

For Squaw Creek, however, maintaining its ecology was about more than finding a decent sugar free coffee sweetener. As such, they entered into a rigorous screening process to identify products worthy of including in an on-site study. In short, durablend-C™ passed the test. And not just because it did not have an adverse interaction with the wetlands. It passed because it worked. A single application of durablend-C™ that incorporated ESI’s proprietary Compact & Cap™ program performed as well or better than two applications of the alternative product tested over the same timeline without compromising the ecosystem.

Dust Control Decision Making: Calcium Chloride vs Magnesium Chloride

As a transportation, site, or project manager, selecting a dust control product is just one of many tasks you’d like to be as efficient as possible in making. With the proliferation of both Calcium and Magnesium chloride, it can seem as though these products are interchangeable, which reduced decision making to just pricing and availability. This belief can be reinforced if you are working with a company that only has access to one supply source, as they intend to simplify your thought process while buying. But if you want to maximize your performance and cost effectiveness, it’s worth going one step further in understanding how these two different products work. Here’s a quick guide you can use.

Best Dust Control Product: Landfills, Agriculture, Mining & Energy

Our roads take us where we need to go, but they are large open spaces vulnerable to erosion and other environmental hazards. They crack and deform with age, releasing dust and other debris into the surroundings. Thus, making the roads hazardous to everyone who lives and works near them. Fortunately, with proper care and planning, our roads can serve us for years without issue. However, each industry has its own environmental concerns.

Oil & Gas Wastewater as a Dust Control Agent: New Product Source or Empty Trend?

By jonathan.nelson on 3.2.2015 Oil & Gas

The domestic Oil and Gas boom has had the number of active drilling pads soar to near record levels and, prior to the softening market, had the US projected to be the largest crude producer in the world in 2015 (courtesy: dailyreckoner.com). One of the effects of the boom has been a proliferation of wastewater, and an understandable urge to put this material to use. On the surface, O&G wastewater has appeared to be a viable agent for application on roads and pads for the purposes of dust control, as it contains a significant level of sodium chloride.
