Engineered Environmental Solutions
Inspired by the the need to do Better . Because We Can.
We provide solutions for Mine Haul & Access Roads as well as Mine Tailings that are sustainable, environmentally compliant, and allow for a significant reduction in water use and reduced CO2 emissions.
Does your Business, as Usual, include the use of bitumen or hydrocarbon waste products for surface seal and dust suppression? OR Applying “products” several times a day? If so, you are increasing your carbon emissions considerably during the application process, as well as increasing your liabilities during closure when the material has to be removed to a depth of one metre. There is a SMATER choice .
The future is different and will require a different approach
Climate change and the resulting legislation and Sustainability Reporting frameworks and requirements being implemented around the world dictate that we start doing things differently.
We are here to help Mining Operations and other clients with this shift in thinking and more over implementation. Our Environmentally safe and sustainable solutions that allow our clients to effectively and quantifiably decrease their carbon emissions, providing the information needed for reporting and showing their instrumental role in the fight against Climate Change and improved Sustainability.
Soil & Dust Solutions endeavours to implement solutions that support the COP26 Goals. Our solutions assist businesses and governments to meet the net-zero goal but reducing GHG emissions and increasing renewable energy output. Find out more about the COP26 Goals
Green Road Construction
Soil & Dust Solutions provides Engineered Environmental Solutions for Green Road Construction to 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. Allowing for quantifiable water and CO2 and cost savings.
The elimination of the crushing, storage, transport and additional construction required when an imported aggregate material is required is substantial, the elimination or significant reduction of this allows reduced CO2 emissions and a reduced environmental impact. (ref: Centre for Sustainability (C4S) at TRL Limited, Taylor Technology, and Costain Limited.)
Sealing Gravel Roads allows for a huge reduction in maintenance which translates directly into reduced environmental impact – less operating equipment — less water – improved Air Quality
The holistic solutions provided by Soil & Dust Solutions, provide alternative and SMART choices to the harmful hydrocarbon, bitumen, and lignosulfonate waste products used historically. There are better choices. The sustainability and cost savings realised is derived from the long term performance of the product which only requires ONE application per year as opposed to the numerous application required per day of the traditional products.

The adaption of new methods and technologies by the construction, infrastructure, mining, and development sectors is essential in order for the companies within these industries to comply with the new standards necessary for us all to do our part in the fight against climate change .
By implementing better decisions companies will engage in triple bottom line actions of corporate, social, and environmental responsibility, while at the same time reducing their future risk in terms of Carbon Cap and Tax policies which are rapidly being adopted and implemented by governments around the world. SAFER – SMARTER – SIMPLER – COST-EFFECTIVE.
Water Neutrality is a global process of instilling water savings projects and initiatives that will offset the amount of water used. A number of countries and regions have recently been listed by the United Nations as “water endangered”, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Australia are amongst those listed.
In many areas where mining operations take place, there exist serious shortages of water supply, making the ability to conserve water usage critical, for which Soil & Dust Solutions provides a viable and effective solution.
IMAGINE THE WATER SAVINGS IF YOU STOPPED WATERING YOUR ROADS FOR DUST CONTROL. That’s right not reduced – stopped.
How much water would you save?

Decarbonizing the mining industry is the front and centre of the 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. See dAIta the Precision Decision subsidiary of Soil Solutions for more information.
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.
