Cypher Environmental is once again returning to Cape Town, South Africa to join the Official Canadian Delegation as attendee of Mining Indaba 2018 from February 3 – 8, 2018! Mining Indaba has been bringing together Africa’s mining experts annually for over 20 years and represents the largest mining conference and trade show on the continent. Cypher has found Mining Indaba to be an excellent platform to help introduce its environmentally friendly mining solutions to prospective partners all over the globe.

EDC (Export Development Canada), a prominent supporter and partner of Mining Indaba, will also be returning to the convention—facilitating their ever-popular ‘EDC Matchmaking Program’. … Read More
Our Construction Foreman Jayme Gladden just finished up an EarthZyme® application on a farm road in Sobe, Edo State, Nigeria. Through a partnership with our Nigerian distributor, Fanaxel Nigeria Ltd, the road construction was executed by partnering company, TransAfrika Roads Technologies. The initial road was little more than a trail with only 2 wheel paths, which was very uneven and completely un-drivable at times. After construction and EarthZyme® application, the road was widened to 7.3 meters to allow higher volumes of traffic. The new road was built to give the local farmers better access to their fields and to help them transport their crops to neighbouring towns for faster shipping while the crops were still ripe, giving them better returns on their yields. The Governor of Edo State, Mr. Godwin Obaseki, has said his administration would take advantage of opportunities in the agricultural sector and provide requisite support to communities … Read More

Cypher Environmental’s Dust Stop has had proven success in many dust control projects around the world. While the effectiveness of the dust control product can easily be seen after its application, here are few photos documenting the dust control process under an electron microscope. The following series of photos show how Dust Stop encapsulates all the soil and dust particles to control fugitive dust. Dust Stop was applied to slag material, a waste product produced from steel production. The hydrophobic nature of slag material makes it highly difficult to encapsulate and bind together, yet Dust Stop is still able to act as an effective binder for this difficult material. Before Dust Stop Application After Dust Stop Application The following photos are of the soil after dust stop application. Note that all the loose dust particles have been encapsulated and binded together.
