New production method creates high-performance, ultra-pure and ecological dust suppressant from natural gas
Scottsdale, Arizona March 10, 2015
Soilworks, the worldwide leader in dust control and soil stabilization products, has been awarded U.S. Patent No. 8,968,592 for its revolutionary gas-to-liquid (GTL) technology-based Durasoil dust control product, the company announced today.
The new GTL Durasoil produces the purest, greenest and most effective synthetic dust suppression fluid in the world.
Until now, petroleum-based dust suppressants and synthetic fluid derivatives had been made from toxic and hazardous crude oil. Now, however, Soilworks has developed a way to produce its Durasoil synthetic dust control fluid from clean, affordable and abundant natural gas. The result is the purest, most efficient dust control product in the world, something consumers have come to expect from Soilworks, the leading authority in the dust control and soil stabilization industry.
Durasoil’s unique ground-breaking synthetic fluid properties control dust on a micron level in the most extreme and intense-use situations by “wetting out” any soil or aggregate to create a long-term, re-workable and self-healing solution that coats and agglomerates particulates, weighing them down like water without evaporating or freezing.
“This product will be a game changer for our clients and their projects around the world,” said Chad Falkenberg, founder of Arizona-based Soilworks. “It’s always our intention to create products that can handle the most severe dust control challenges while still being environmentally friendly. Our new Durasoil formula does just that.”
A unique enhancement provided by the GTL technology is the ability to apply as-is during the winter, in dusty environments created from freeze dried soils and particulates in extreme arctic conditions; when other products have long frozen solid. Furthermore, its non-volatile formulation and increased resistance to oxidation from intense UV rays further extends Durasoil’s performance longevity even in scalding hot, arid environments.
“This GTL technology will shift the way dust suppressants are expected to perform as well as impact our environment,” Falkenberg said. “Today’s dust control industry is driven by ever-increasing requirements for environmental efficacy and genuine results and Durasoil’s GTL technology is pioneering the way as the purest, most ecologically sound and effective synthetic dust control fluid on the globe today.”
