Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport - Cypher Environmental

Aéroports de Montréal “Happy With Long Lasting Capabilities” of Dust Stop®   Cypher Environmental Ltd. offers a range of unique environmental solutions that can be used for a variety of applications in environmentally sensitive areas. One recent example was a Dust Stop® application at the Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport in Montréal, QC, Canada. Dust Stop® has been applied to Route 500 at the airport two years in a row, in 2014 and 2015. It was an ideal solution for the airport due to the need to use a non-corrosive and environmentally friendly product. The non-corrosive factor was an extremely important qualifying necessity for the airport. Corrosive materials are not allowed on the premises because of the sensitivity of airplanes that regularly travel through the airport. Route 500 is located only 500 feet from a major runway which is the minimum legal distance for an unpaved road to be adjacent … Read More

Village of Dunnottar - Cypher Environmental

Village of Dunnottar: Recommendation Letter from Mayor   Dear Mr. Burns: The Village of Dunnottar is a community on the shores of Lake Winnipeg. We strive to be aware of the products we use within our community as they will have an effect on the health of Lake Winnipeg. Dust suppressants have been a big concern of mine because they generally have a toxic chemical base (art.64 CEPA). We became aware of Cypher Environmental and their Dust Stop product. Dust Stop contains 100% organic materials that are completely biodegradable, non-toxic and non-hazardous. This past summer the Village applied Dust Stop product to our roads with very satisfactory results. Even with an extremely wet summer, we were pleased with the performance of this product. We are definitely planning to use Dust Stop again next season. I recently attended the Association of Manitoba Municipalities Convention and Trade Show. The Cypher Environmental booth … Read More

Dust Stop Product Testing in Columbia - Cypher Environmental

Excellent Performance of Dust Stop® in Columbia   We recently conducted a demonstration of Dust Stop®’s ability to effectively control dust emissions of particulate matter. This demonstration took place in the COQUECOL Free Zone yard in the Municipality of Buenaventura, Valle Del Cauca, Colombia. The goal is to measure the difference in volume of coal piles with and without Dust Stop® application. Five samples were organized in 1.4m cubes which were open at the top and at the front. Coal was then placed into each cube at an approximate slope of 45%, effectively filling half of the volume of the cube. Three samples were sprayed with Dust Stop® at different dilution rates in water to show the performance of Dust Stop® at controlling dust emissions. Cypher Environmental is a global leader and provider of environmentally friendly solutions. It is our goal to produce and distribute products that are not harmful 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
