Cypher Environmental - EDC Trade Mission in Colombia

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

Cypher Environmental - Shenhua Mining Road

The nearly 20 km of permanent haul roads stabilized with EarthZyme in August of 2014 continue to perform as promised for the Shenhua Group’s open pit coal mine near Xilinhote, Inner Mongolia, in Northern China. 19.8 km of EarthZyme stabilized haul roads were built over 15 months ago now and therefore have been subjected to the harsh Inner Mongolian winter and the two distinct rainy seasons regularly experienced in the region, and continue to exhibit significantly improved engineering properties. Weather conditions aside, considering the roads are subjected to a constant flow of 250 ton (when empty) haul truck traffic, and the original untreated clay soil is considered to have marginal engineering properties at best, the results speak volumes to the performance characteristics of EarthZyme stabilized materials. EarthZyme stabilization results in high clay content soils with increased density and CBR (California Bearing Ratio) results, as well as significantly reduced swelling potential. … Read More

We attended the show in partnership with our distributors in Peru, Informes y Soluciones S.A.C., and were both very excited about forging new partnerships as a result of all the great connections that we made. Many of those connections were developed as a result of the great matchmaking program we took part in, spearheaded by EDC (Export Development Canada). The EDC matchmaking meetings really solidified our investment in participating in … Read More

Cypher Environmental - Curries Landing

Cypher Environmental is pleased to announce a recent undertaking of a soil stabilization and dust control related research project, jointly funded by Brandon University and Cypher Environmental. The project involves a very detailed look in the lab at the improved engineering properties of clay soils with EarthZyme and Dust Stop, as well as an evaluation of 3 miles of roads being built with EarthZyme and Dust Stop in the Rural Municipality (RM) of Cornwallis, just outside the City of Brandon, Manitoba. There is a critical need for better construction techniques and stabilization of unpaved roads throughout rural and Northern Manitoba as well as across the country.  The current project is aimed at providing a low cost and sustainable solution to these problems through the use of cheaper clay-rich aggregates and non-toxic organic catalysts, EarthZyme soil stabilization and Dust Stop dust control solution, that cause high-density packing and strong semi-permanent bonding … Read More
