Road Dust Control – Soybean Based
Unlike petroleum based road dust control methods, soybean oil is biodegradable and will not contaminate water supplies. Additionally, soybean oil is non-corrosive and washes off easily with soap and water. It means long-term savings in road and maintenance.
When soybean oil is applied, it penetrates inches below the road’s surface and “bonds” with the bed material of the surface, and forms a protective shield for the road. This protective coating not only controls dust, but also stabilizes the road material so grading is required less frequently. This “bond” also reduces the pulverization of the raod therefore reducing the need for additional loads of gravel each year.
This agricultural product is completely biodegradable. Soybean oil is a more effective alternative to the traditional road dust control suppressants, calcium and magnesium chloride. Calcium and magnesium chloride are both water soluble. When it rains, they dissolve, and run-off could end up in your ground water.
This is one of the necessary factors in case of the ecological and environmental attributes. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, road dust control is the largest cause to particulate air pollution in America. The amount of dust that is produced during the oil drifting and drilling in the off shore area is five times greater than two other contributors, which are construction activities and wind erosion. Our products are assuring the dust controlling facility with all the necessary attributes that enhancing the CSR focusing on the end objective.
