Research on UltraZyme Hydrocarbon Published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering

Cypher EnvironmentalNews

  A recent study conducted by the University of Alberta, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, was published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering, which showcased the use of Cypher’s UltraZyme Hydrocarbon product to remediate oil sands tailings.  Oil sands consist of a mixture of sand, water, clay and bitumen, and in Canada the deposits that are the largest and most widely developed are known as the Athabasca Oil Sands.  Although the most technologically advanced processes in the world are used to extract these Oil Sands deposits, there remains an accumulation of 1,075 million m^3 of tailings – enough to fill 430,000 Olympic sized swimming pools!  The research conducted by the U of A using UltraZyme has shown promising advances in the steps being taken to improve the processes involved in the remediation and recycling of these tailings. The tailings being generated by the Athabasca Oil Sands can be generally … Read More

Cypher’s President Talks with International Business Students at Red River College

CypherNews

For the third time, Todd Burns, President of Cypher Environmental, was asked to give a speech to the International Business Students from Red River College. The program at Red River College is very diverse, not only in course material, but also in terms of the student enrollment. Although the program is offered in Canada, not a single Canadian student is enrolled in this year’s program, showing the diversity and applicability of the course to handle and discuss a broad range of business topics relevant to commerce globally. Therefore, Cypher’s experience doing business abroad is always of keen interest to the students and Todd is always happy to give back, being a former Red River College graduate himself. This time around, Todd’s focus of the discussion was on Cypher’s current attempt to diversify, and entering into new markets, such as in Honduras, where our soil stabilization and dust suppression technologies have … Read More

Expomin brings together 1,700 mine suppliers from 36 countries around the world, compiling the best and most diverse range of technology, equipment, machines, services and suppliers for the Chilean and Latin American mining industry.  Therefore it was only fitting that Cypher Environmental took part this year, to help raise awareness in the Chilean mining industry about the unique cost saving mining solutions that Cypher has developed.

Cypher’s President Asked to Provide Comment on the Trans Pacific Partnership

CypherConventions and Events, Cypher Environmental, Dust Stop, EarthZyme, News, Soil Stabilization, UltraZyme

It is a well-known fact that Cypher Environmental is an active exporter in Canada, with a steady percentage of its sales annually being made up of exports of its soil stabilization, dust control and water remediation technologies. This is why Cypher works so closely with organizations in Canada that are designed specifically to help grow and nurture companies in the country that have a major focus on sales outside of the country, such as EDC (Export Development Canada), CME (Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters) and the TCS (the Canadian Trade Commissioner Service). Therefore it was a natural fit that Todd Burns, Cypher’s President, was asked to be a Witness and address the Canadian House of Commons’ International Trade Committee in view of its pre-study of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP), in Winnipeg, on April 21st, 2016. The TPP is a trade agreement among twelve Pacific Rim countries, Canada included, signed on … Read More
