Engineered Solutions. Inspired by the Environment.
Soil & Dust Solutions provides proven Engineered Environmental Solutions™ for the implementation of environmentally efficient methods for the reduction of green house gasses and carbon emissions
Road Construction + Dust Suppression x (SOIL & DUST SOLUTIONS ) = > CO2
ROADS FOR GREEN LIVING
Our products and services represent Best Available Technology (BAT) as a new and technologically advanced co-polymer stabilizer which utilizes nano technology to create a matrix of particles which increase the strength of in-situ soils and provide an effective surface seal for dust suppression.
We provide environmentally engineered options for our clients as alternative choices to the traditional bitumen, asphalt and cement materials typically used in road construction, and which have non-sustainable and high environmental impacts. The elimination of the crushing, storage, transport and additional construction required when an imported aggregate is required is substantial, the elimination or significant reduction of this allows from reduced emissions. The elimination of cement or significant decrease in amounts required also allows for reduced emissions and environmental impact. (ref: Centre for Sustainability (C4S) at TRL Limited, Taylor Technology, and Costain Limited.)
Less Cement and Aggregate. Better Longer Lasting Roads. No Water for Dust Control. Better for Environment.
Our dust control solutions provide alternative choices to the harmful hydrocarbon, bitumen, and lignosulfonate waste products available in the marketplace and allow for significant decrease in water usage, as the products are applied once every 12-18 months (dependent upon project specifics), not on a regular basis, which is required when using other products available.
Soil & Dust Solutions is dedicated to the Environment and recognizes the importance of combating climate change through the reduction of carbon emissions and provides Engineered Solutions for the Environment™
The proper construction of a Mine Haul Road will:
= Reduced CO2 Emissions
Effective Dust Control will:
= Reduced CO2 Emissions
“We think Green means Green.
This is a time period where environmental improvement is going to lead toward profitability. “

The investment to use our products for road construction and dust suppression will prove to be an effective investment in the environment which will also:
Does your Business as Usual include the use of bitumen or hydrocarbon waste products for surface seal and dust suppression? If so, you are increasing your carbon emissions considerably during the application process, the duration of usage and during closure when the material has to be removed to a depth of one metre.
Minerals beneficiation alone contributes more than 60% to South Africa’s total industrial greenhouse gas emissions, a high percentage of which comes from the burning of fossil fuels or use of electricity to smelt or refine ore.
Worldwide, the mining industry contributes 65 % of Green House Gas Emissions. While the reliance of the population and world’s economies on natural resources is not going to decrease significantly, the incorporation of environmentally efficient methods into the capital development and operational costs of mining and industrial operations will have a positive effect on the carbon emission reduction, and the green house gas effect on global warming.
Many countries around the world have already implemented Carbon Cap and Tax legislation; many more will follow in the coming years. As a result of the recent Summit on Climate Change – South Africa (Gallagher Estates, March 2-6, 2009), South Africa will have its formal Carbon Cap and Tax regulations in place by 2012.
Mines and industries that undertake initiatives that reduce carbon emissions will position themselves to:
Avoid carbon tax for exceeding emission limits and Earn Carbon credits as a result.
Effective management of the daily operations on mine sites can be adapted to new methods that decrease carbon emissions substantially.
Soil & Dust Solutions offers a real opportunity for our mining, construction, and industrial clients in terms of Carbon Emission Reduction (CER) resulting in a significantly reduced environmental footprint and Carbon Credits. Soil & Dust Solutions not only supplies BAT – Best Available Technology, but also the knowledge and ability to guide its clients through the CDM process through to technical and site assistance.
Reduced CO2 –CER through reduced/eliminated diesel consumption associated with constant dust suppression and inferior road construction.
the reduction process falls under a defined methodology under energy efficiency, fuel switching (in our case significant decrease of diesel consumption) for carbon emission reduction. (Contact us for more detailed information)
Use of product is guaranteed to have a significant impact on the current baseline (models to demonstrate are available, contact us for more information)
We have been working together with strategic top industry leaders in several different sectors in order to develop a comprehensive data model to determine CO2 baseline assessments. Call us for an appointment to assess and evaluate your operations.
Material Data Safety Sheets, Environmental Toxicity Reports, and Aquatic Toxicity Reports are available upon request.
