Cypher Environmental was invited to Myanmar this month to meet with the Chief Minister and other high ranking Ministers to discuss the country’s infrastructure and the rebuilding of some of the country’s major roads using Cypher’s soil stabilizer, EarthZyme. A section of rural road near Shwebo was chosen as the first demonstration site in the country. EarthZyme was applied with great results. Myanmar or officially known as the Republic of the Union of Myanmar is located in Southeast Asia and bordered by Bangladesh, India, China, Laos and Thailand. The region experiences a long dry season. Water shortages are a frequent issue across the country so UltraZyme was also looked at as a potential solution for water-related issues at various industrial applications with highly polluted wastewater streams.
Unpaved roads can be dangerous to operate on and require frequent and ongoing road maintenance to upkeep. Our soil stabilization product, EarthZyme is environmentally-friendly and yields permanent results. EarthZyme applications result in improved engineering properties of treated soils, such as increased CBR values and densities, and reduced swell, permeability, dust and rolling resistance.
