It is widely recognized, through studies and testing, that the use of road salts causes significant corrosion problems for buildings and architecture. So undeniable is the evidence of road salt corrosion that potential damage is often estimated by using data from coastal architecture corrosion caused by natural sea salt. Basically, that means that comparing the weather and humidity in an area where road salts are used, to a similar coastal region, provides a real world model of how much damage results from the use of road salts. Similarly, it has been found that the use of magnesium chloride is a significant factor in the cause of truck, electrical systems and road concrete corrosion. Damage is not limited to architecture and buildings close to where road salts have been used, either. Moving vehicles, and especially heavy duty types, cause road salt mists to form in the air. These mists consist of … Read More
On March 4th, 2013, Cypher Environmental was asked to give a presentation at the Canada-China Green Mining Innovation Workshop. The workshop was hosted by the Natural Resources Canada Minerals and Metals Sector to improve communication between Canada and China to improve green practices in the mining sector and to promote mutually beneficial business partnerships between the two countries. A copy of the PowerPoint presentation is available for download.
We are looking forward to attending the PDAC2013 International Convention, Trade Show & Investors Exchange – Mining Investment Show. This annual 4-day event is held in Toronto every year and this year’s show will be held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre -South Building from March 3rd to 6th, 2013. Since it’s inception in 1932, this event has grown substantially in size, stature, attendance and influence. Today, the event is the event of choice for the world’s mineral industry. Last year’s event attracted over 30,000 attendees from 125 countries around the world with over 1,000 exhibitors representing every facet of the mining industry. PDAC 2013 is an unique opportunity to meet with others in the mining industry as well as to showcase Cypher’s many environmentally-friendly solutions for the mining industry. We are looking forward to being part of this valuable event again and look forward to meeting you there!
