Addressing Environmental Regulations Helps with Road Construction and Maintenance Efficiency

EnviRoad® started in the early 1970’s selling, hauling, and distributing dust control products throughout the Pacific Northwest. Working with the Forest Service we helped to spread lignin and magnesium chloride dust abatement products on unpaved roads throughout the region. Eventually, this led to us branching out to service municipal locations all around the world. During… Read more »

With Consistent Application, Earthbind® 100 Is a Cost Effective Dust Control Measure

Fugitive dust particles that are released by passing traffic and local weather conditions can cause several different complications. Beyond safety and respiratory health concerns, a dusty road is also at increased risk of suffering washboarding, potholes, and general deterioration of the road bed. In dry conditions, frequent water truck applications and chloride based dust control… Read more »

Earthbind® Prime Coat Can Be Used to Stabilize a Roadbed without Using VOC’s

Effective base stabilization is very important for the long-term success of a paving project. A loose base that has been affected by seasonal rainfall can cause inconsistencies in the paving process. As the years go by, this can increase repair and maintenance costs on the final paved road. Certain areas of the final paved road… Read more »

Dry Conditions Often Require Dust Control Measures on Unpaved Roads

Late in the summer and early fall, it is possible for dry conditions to affect many regions throughout the United States and internationally. While this might be a short-term problem, it often requires a better solution than the daily application of water by a water truck. The excessive man hours and fuel costs required to… Read more »

Earthbind® 100 Remains in an Unpaved Roadbed Longer than Chloride-Based Agents

When calcium chloride and magnesium chloride based dust control agents first came into use, they were perceived as a cost-effective alternative to water truck delivery for controlling dust on unpaved roads. After all, water trucks required extensive man hours, available water resources, and often multiple applications each week during excessively dry conditions. As time went… Read more »

Ecological Dust Control Agents Can Be Based on Lignin Sulfonate

Fugitive dust particles in the air from traffic and inclement wind conditions affected an unpaved roadbed can present many hazards. Beyond the simple impairment to visibility, it can also cause the roadbed to degrade, causing damage to passing vehicles and potentially adding to maintenance costs. In the past, some road maintenance entities have turned to… Read more »

Alternative Paving with Recycled Asphalt for Trails

EnviRoad worked with Columbia County, Oregon last season to pave a portion of the Crown Zellerbach trail using Earthbind® Stabilizer – Recycled Asphalt. The portion of the trail was located on either side of Tony’s Crossing – a bridge dedicated in the honor of Tony Hyde who was integral in laying the original 28.6 miles… Read more »

The Ability to Ship and Store in Concentrate Helps Earthbind® 100 to Be Cost Effective

Earthbind® 100 is a sophisticated modified biopolymer developed by EnviRoad® as an ecologically friendly and cost-effective alternative to chloride-based dust control measures. It is also a far superior alternative to the constant application from water trucks during dry weather. Earthbind® 100 can be shipped and stored in concentration to further reduce costs. It can then… Read more »

Earthbind® 100 is a Cost-Effective Alternative to Chloride-Based Dust Control Measures

In the past, calcium chloride and magnesium chloride agents were used as dust control measures to reduce the presence of fugitive dust particles from unpaved roads. These agents came with a bevy of different problems. Their corrosive nature increased maintenance costs on storage tanks as well as application vehicles and equipment. They also have a… Read more »

EBS-RA is an Effective Alternative to VOC Paving Products

For many years, volatile organic compounds (VOCs) were used in various paving applications even though they have long been known to have ecological, safety, and potential medical hazards. Over the years, this has driven many paving companies and municipalities to look for a cost-effective, ecologically friendly alternative. Through painstaking research and meticulous lab formulation, EnviRoad®… Read more »
