In an era demanding adaptability and sustainability, the mining sector must embrace transformative methods. Our cost-effective solutions empower companies to navigate this shift, aligning with triple bottom line principles of corporate, social, and environmental responsibility. This not only positions them competitively but also mitigates future risks related to evolving Carbon Cap and Tax policies worldwide. Embrace a future that’s SAFER, SMARTER, SIMPLER, and COST-EFFECTIVE with Soil & Dust Solutions.
Unlocking Water Neutrality: Revolutionizing Water Conservation in Mining Operations
Water Neutrality is a global imperative, aimed at implementing water-saving projects and initiatives that counterbalance water consumption. A critical call to action, particularly in regions labeled as “water endangered” by the United Nations, including South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Australia.
In mining areas grappling with severe water shortages, the need to conserve water becomes paramount. Soil & Dust Solutions presents a transformative solution that goes beyond reduction – it’s about complete cessation.
IMAGINE THE WATER SAVINGS IF YOU STOPPED WATERING YOUR ROADS FOR DUST CONTROL. That’s not merely a reduction; it’s a complete cessation. Envision the substantial water conservation that could be achieved.
Join us in redefining water sustainability in mining operations. With Soil & Dust Solutions, embrace a solution that not only aligns with global water-saving goals but also positions your operation as a steward of water resources. It’s time to revolutionize water conservation practices.

Reduced Environmental Footprint through Engineered Environmental Solutions
Soil & Dust Solutions is at the forefront of environmentally efficient solutions, inspired by a commitment to reduce greenhouse gases and carbon emissions. Our equation for success:
Road Construction + Dust Suppression (SOIL & DUST SOLUTIONS) = CO2 Reduction
Proper Mine Haul Road construction yields a cascade of benefits:
- Improved Work Cycle
- Reduced Fleet Size
- Increased Fuel Efficiency
- Enhanced Skid Resistance
- Reduced Rolling Resistance
- Extended Tyre Life
Resulting in Reduced CO2 Emissions
Effective Dust Control leads to remarkable environmental gains:
- Elimination of Constant Watering
- Reduced Diesel Consumption
- Significant Water Consumption Reduction
- Decreased Vehicle Maintenance
Resulting in Reduced CO2 Emissions
We think Green means Green.
As Jeffrey R. Immelt, Chairman, and CEO of GE, rightly said, “This is a time period where environmental improvement is going to lead toward profitability.”
Investing in our products for mine haul road construction and dust suppression is an investment not only in the environment but in:
- Reducing CO2 Emissions
- Increasing Efficiency
- Boosting Production
- Enhancing Profitability
ONE LITRE OF DIESEL SAVED = 2.63 KGS OF CO2 SAVED
Reducing Carbon Emissions in Mining: A Strategic Imperative
Globally, the mining industry is responsible for 65% of Greenhouse Gas Emissions. As the world’s reliance on natural resources persists, integrating environmentally efficient practices into mining operations becomes crucial for curbing carbon emissions and mitigating the impact on global warming.
The implementation of Carbon Cap and Tax legislation is gaining momentum worldwide, and South Africa is set to formalize its regulations by 2012. Mining and industrial operations that proactively reduce carbon emissions position themselves to:
- Avoid carbon tax for exceeding emission limits
- Earn Carbon Credits
Soil & Dust Solutions presents a tangible opportunity for mining, construction, and industrial clients to achieve Carbon Emission Reduction (CER), translating into a substantially reduced environmental footprint and the potential to earn Carbon Credits. We not only provide Best Available Technology (BAT) but also offer the expertise to guide clients through the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) process, providing technical and on-site assistance.
Clean Development Mechanism – CDM Project Overview
Reduced CO2 – CER through:
- Reduced/Eliminated Diesel Consumption related to constant dust suppression and inferior road construction.
- The reduction process aligns with defined methodologies under energy efficiency, particularly fuel switching, leading to a significant decrease in diesel consumption. For more detailed information, contact us.
- Our product guarantees a substantial impact on the current baseline, with available models for demonstration.
- Reduced environmental impact
- Dust suppression for reduced air pollution
- Safer and healthier working environment
- Worker re-deployment (no jobs lost)
- Reduced operational costs
- Significant water conservation
- Capital expenditure required
- Utilization of Best Available Technology
- Baseline and CER reduction levels not sensitive to sales volumes
- A transformative shift from Business as Usual
We collaborate with industry leaders to develop a comprehensive data model for CO2 baseline assessments. Contact 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.
Carbon Emission Credits
Decarbonizing the mining industry is the front and centre of the big business climate change movement. More mining companies are making bold commitments to help fight climate change. With the introduction of Carbon Credits, these changes also have a positive spin-off.
Soil & Dust can assist in helping companies reach these goals. Through the use of sensors and data collection that is then analyzed and combined with AI and machine learning which will provide predictive models.
This will allow for quantifiable accounting for CO2 and GHG which can then be used on blockchain and carbon credit platforms. This end-to-end system is integrated on ONE easy to use platform/dashboard.
