Cypher EnvironmentalNews

The City of Brandon - Cypher Environmental

In an effort to raise awareness of our eco-friendly and cost-effective haul road management solutions in the Rural Municipality sector, Cypher Environmental has produced a new promotional video—showcasing several of the municipalities involved with many of our dust control and soil stabilization projects in Canada over the past year. Our solutions have been proven to help our rural municipalities address the ecological footprint, maintenance costs and durability issues associated with haul road management. Since the recent development of Dust Stop® Municipal Blend—our most cost-effective product to date—we have seen a substantial increase in the attention of municipalities from all over the country. Due to the decreased road maintenance requirements and simple application procedure, municipalities have been able to divert their attention from high-maintenance unpaved roads to other pressing matters, with peace-of-mind. We would like to acknowledge and give our thanks for the continued support from The Rural Municipality of Cornwallis, … Read More

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

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

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
