Cypher EnvironmentalNews

A 1 km demonstration section of road using EarthZyme and Dust Stop Municipal Blend (DSMB) was recently built near Valencia, Cordoba, Colombia in a joint project between Cypher Environmental, Roadcorp, the University of Antioquia and The Colombian Ministry of Transportation. The University of Antioquia was tasked to independently study the road for the Ministry, as well as conduct simultaneous lab analysis of how EarthZyme and DSMB impact the engineering properties of the materials in the road. Other government entities in Colombia that are stakeholders in this project include INVIAS (The National Roads Institute) and the State Government of Cordoba, who generously provided the equipment for this project. It was also supported by COOVICOM, and Alcaldia de Valencia, who produced a great video during the construction process, that can be viewed below.   This study is being conducted to investigate new techniques and technologies to assist with the better construction and … Read More
