Gorilla-Snot is an eco-safe, biodegradable, liquid copolymer used to control erosion and suppress dust. It is designed to be easily applied to almost any soil or aggregate.

“We’ll work around the clock until we have the problem under control,” said Chad Falkenberg, president and founder of Soilworks in the news release.
