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.
The solution will take 162 totes carried on 10 trucks to supply the recommended amount of dust control product. Copyright 2016 Tucson News Now. All rights reserved.
