One of the primary problems facing the mining and oil exploration communities as well as many others, are fugitive dust and airborne dirt from the operation of the mine/drilling sites. These conditions present a number of hazards, not the least of which are poor respiratory environments for those workers subjected to these conditions. Off-site migration of contaminated soil has become a problem which is now being monitored in many locations. Company-wide programs should be developed to combat this problem. The immediate benefits of dust suppression are;
EnerCrust™ was developed to combat this problem. EnerCrust™ is a 100% biodegradable liquid concentrate to be mixed with water and applied with any type of mobile spray system. Once applied it forms a very thin clear crust which will suppress all dust and dirt from becoming airborne. This crust will dissipate and seep into the ground after strong rainfalls at which point a new application will need to be applied. The nutrients in the EnerCrust concentrate are beneficial to the soil.
EnerCrust™ can be used to control dust and airborne matter in most situations including but not limited to those listed below
