Cypher Environmental - EarthZyme Road Construction in Myanmar

Cypher recently finished two projects in Myanmar, involving the use of EarthZyme® combined with inexpensive localized clay road material. Both projects are a result of the local government responding to alleviate the problematic conditions that are characteristic of the region’s rural roads. Both roads are susceptible to heavy volumes of traffic, leading to insurmountable construction and maintenance costs, as well as lengthy construction delays. These projects were carried out in order to find a cost-effective method of road construction that would withstand this traffic for longer periods and alleviate long-term construction costs. Cypher Environmental’s own Construction Foreman, Jayme Gladden, oversaw the entire production of both projects—helping to educate the local construction workers on proper application technique. The first project took place between Shwe Hlay village and Shwe Ku village. The roads around these villages were in extremely poor shape and had enormous potholes—roughly 1m2 in diameter—making it extremely difficult to … Read More

Dust Control and Dust Suppression on the Set of Heartland (TV)

Cypher EnvironmentalDust Stop, Dust Stop Projects, Featured Projects

Hollywood North Impressed with Dust Stop® Performance As a Location Manager in the Film and Television industry in Canada, it is my responsibility to handle the logistics of filming. One of the projects in 2007 was a C.B.C. TV series called “Heartland”. Our main set was located 3 km down a gravel road, where there are probably 10 acreages. Dust abatement was part of our agreement with the local M.D. office, so I started to look at different options. A water truck is the most common way that a Movie Company controls dust. Most shows are only in one area for a short period of time, but “Heartland” would last 5 1/2 months. The water truck would have been extremely expensive, and the water applied everyday to a road increases the need to grade the road. Oil was a very expensive option and it would have to be reapplied throughout … Read More
