Cypher Environmental recently took part in an Export Development Canada (EDC) trade mission in Colombia, focused on infrastructure, the week of November 23, 2015. The mission included B2B meetings in Bogota, Medellin and Barranquilla with several of Colombia’s largest infrastructure companies and key sector players, and was followed by networking opportunities at the National Infrastructure Congress in Cartagena where first-hand intelligence about Colombia’s Infrastructure Master Plans were gathered. Colombia’s infrastructure program includes airports, ports, social infrastructure, as well as an ambitious road concession program that entails the construction of 30+ road projects that will add over 8,000 kilometers of highways to the country’s transportation system and will require a total estimated investment of US$25 billion. Therefore Cypher’s soil stabilization and road dust control solutions were discussed with several key players during the week to investigate their applicability for use as solutions in several of these projects. As usual, the team … Read More
Red River College has received a $65,000 research grant to continue product development work with a local company specializing in environmental solutions for dust control. The Applied Research and Development (ARD) grant — awarded by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) — will allow RRC’s faculty researchers, staff and students to collaborate with Cypher Environmental staff to continue development and testing of Dust Stop, their dust control and dust suppression product. This project will significantly enhance R&D capacity at RRC by engaging staff in a challenging multi-disciplinary area of research.

It’s no secret that the mining industry in Canada is significant – employing more than 400,000 people in Canada and representing over 50 per cent of the world’s public mining companies.

The Gobi Desert is a stretch of desert that covers an area of 1,295,000km2 and covers parts of northern and northwestern China and into southern Mongolia. The desert landscape makes the area more susceptible to trampling by livestock and off-road vehicles. In an effort to protect the natural desert environment and to ensure safe driving, Cypher’s EarthZyme soil stabilizer was applied to a stretch of coal mine haul road that hauls coal from Southern Mongolia into North China. This region of the desert is also blocked by the Himalaya Mountains which means it receives very little rainfall on an annual basis. This causes an extremely dry environment where dust suppression is necessary to ensure safe driving. The need for an effective dust control solution in this delicate environment required an environmentally-friendly solution that can control dust with minimal maintenance and re-application and a soil stabilizing effect that can withstand heavy … Read More
