Cypher Environmental - CIM Feature: The Green Path to China

Last month, we were featured in the August 2013 edition of the CIM Magazine for the project we recently completed in Northern China.  China’s mining industry is growing at a rapid pace and the growing push for more eco-friendly mining processes and equipment has opened the market to international suppliers who are able to provide knowledge and solutions in that area. With the widespread pollution that is affecting the country, the concept of “Green Mining” is becoming more and more relevant.  Canadian suppliers are able to meet that demand with many green products that can help advance green mining techniques in the country.  With the aid of CanmetMINING, a division of Natural Resources Canada (NRCan), the doors have now opened for Canadian suppliers to establish a competitive advantage in China. On our recent visit to China, we saw first hand the enormous market for green mining products and solutions in … Read More

Soil Stabilizer for South American Coal Mine

Columbian EarthZyme® Haul Road

Different application sites will have different requirements in a soil stabilizer. There are many factors to consider when choosing a soil stabilizer for your project. Climate, soil content and load requirements are just a few of the factors that you must examine and understand before choosing a soil stabilizer. Cypher Environmental is a global distributor of EarthZyme soil stabilizer. Our soil stabilizer has been used all around the world and we have taken great care to ensure its effectiveness across all regions.   One of our biggest projects was an EarthZyme application in Colombia – in one of South America’s largest coal mines.  The coal mine produces nearly two milling tons of coal per year, maintaining a sterile standard ration of 6 to 1.  At the time of application, the mine mobilized approximately 15 million cubic meters per year using CAT 793 trucks that have a capacity of 380 tons.  Smaller … Read More

EarthZyme & Dust Stop in Gobi Desert

Cypher Environmental - EarthZyme in Gobi Desert, Mongolia / China

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

EarthZyme for Third World Countries

Cypher Environmental - EarthZyme for Third World Countries

The lack of existing infrastructure is very much a reality in many third world countries around the world.  This lack of infrastructure can also affect any housing or major construction projects that require access to areas without reliable roads for passage.  For many humanitarian effects in these countries, it is necessary to build new dirt roads or feeder roads from scratch or to reconstruct existing dirt roads to withstand heavier loads. Many of these areas also lacked resources for constant maintenance for roads so a sustainable solution that is also environmentally-friendly is extremely important.  The application process is also another important factor to consider when choosing the right soil stabilizer for these projects.  Because many of these regions will not readily have access to modern road construction equipment and resources, the application process can not involve equipment that cannot easily be brought in to the construction sites. Cypher’s EarthZyme soil … Read More

Recognizing the Corrosion Threat Part II

CypherCypher Environmental, Dust Stop, News

In the first part of this two part blog entry, we highlighted how road salts cause corrosion to architecture and buildings. However, the level of corrosion caused by road salts is not only determined by the ingredients and distribution of particles, but also by the materials used in the construction of the architecture and buildings. Aluminium is considered a highly corrosive resistant material; mainly because of the protective oxide film used in its construction. Road salts, which contain chlorides, can easily penetrate this protective film and cause corrosion. The only way to prevent corrosion, apart from ensuring that only a product such as Dust Stop Liquid Concentrate is used for dust control and de-icing, is to regularly clean the surface and remove salt deposits. Aluminium corrosion is identified by a white or greyish dust forming on the surface of the metal. Although not the most significant contributor to the corrosion … Read More
