For the first time, Cypher Environmental attended the Sixth International Banana Conference – CORBANA and 21st International Meeting – ACORBAT, which took place from April 19th to 22nd, 2016 in Miami, Florida.

Over the last few years, continuous innovation has driven the Cypher research and development team to deliver a solution for latex removal in the post-harvest cleaning of bananas.

Expomin brings together 1,700 mine suppliers from 36 countries around the world, compiling the best and most diverse range of technology, equipment, machines, services and suppliers for the Chilean and Latin American mining industry.  Therefore it was only fitting that Cypher Environmental took part this year, to help raise awareness in the Chilean mining industry about the unique cost saving mining solutions that Cypher has developed.

Cypher’s President Asked to Provide Comment on the Trans Pacific Partnership

CypherConventions and Events, Cypher Environmental, Dust Stop, EarthZyme, News, Soil Stabilization, UltraZyme

It is a well-known fact that Cypher Environmental is an active exporter in Canada, with a steady percentage of its sales annually being made up of exports of its soil stabilization, dust control and water remediation technologies. This is why Cypher works so closely with organizations in Canada that are designed specifically to help grow and nurture companies in the country that have a major focus on sales outside of the country, such as EDC (Export Development Canada), CME (Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters) and the TCS (the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service). Therefore it was a natural fit that Todd Burns, Cypher’s President, was asked to be a Witness and address the Canadian House of Commons’ International Trade Committee in view of its pre-study of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), in Winnipeg, on April 21st, 2016. The TPP is a trade agreement among twelve Pacific Rim countries, Canada included, signed on … Read More

Cypher Environmental - Haul Road

Industrial products provide dust suppression, water management alternatives. Anyone who has driven on a rural road or worked in remote areas where oil, mining, forestry or other development is occurring knows dealing with dust and unstable soils can be annoying; it can also be a never-ending and costly task. Winnipeg-based Cypher Environmental Ltd., run by 34-year-old entrepreneur Todd Burns, has perfected an eco-friendly way to virtually eliminate that dust and to stabilize soils in areas like mine sites, where heavy truck traffic is a constant and expensive irritant. And it has developed a technology that uses bacteria and enzymes for wastewater remediation, potentially a multimillion-dollar market. Cypher’s business motto – “Driven by innovation – partners in performance” – captures the fast-growing company’s raison d’être. As is the case with most successful companies, it took leadership to bring that motto and vision to reality. Burns, who has travelled to more than … Read More

PDAC 2016 Convention

Cypher Environmental was pleased to again have a presence at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada (PDAC) International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange. PDAC took place in Toronto, ON, from March 6th – 9th, and we had a great time visiting with current customers and distributors, and making new connections.
