Cypher Environmental - EarthZyme in Gobi Desert, Mongolia / China

The Gobi Desert is a stretch of desert that covers an area of 1,295,000km2 and covers parts of northern and northwestern China and into southern Mongolia.  The desert landscape makes the area more susceptible to trampling by livestock and off-road vehicles.  In an effort to protect the natural desert environment and to ensure safe driving, Cypher’s EarthZyme soil stabilizer was applied to a stretch of coal mine haul road that hauls coal from Southern Mongolia into North China. This region of the desert is also blocked by the Himalaya Mountains which means it receives very little rainfall on an annual basis.  This causes an extremely dry environment where dust suppression is necessary to ensure safe driving. The need for an effective dust control solution in this delicate environment required an environmentally-friendly solution that can control dust with minimal maintenance and re-application and a soil stabilizing effect that can withstand heavy … Read More

Cypher Environmental - EarthZyme for Third World Countries

The lack of existing infrastructure is very much a reality in many third world countries around the world.  This lack of infrastructure can also affect any housing or major construction projects that require access to areas without reliable roads for passage.  For many humanitarian effects in these countries, it is necessary to build new dirt roads or feeder roads from scratch or to reconstruct existing dirt roads to withstand heavier loads. Many of these areas also lacked resources for constant maintenance for roads so a sustainable solution that is also environmentally-friendly is extremely important.  The application process is also another important factor to consider when choosing the right soil stabilizer for these projects.  Because many of these regions will not readily have access to modern road construction equipment and resources, the application process can not involve equipment that cannot easily be brought in to the construction sites. Cypher’s EarthZyme soil … Read More
