  6. Q and A

 Current Products Available for Road Dust

Calcium/Magnesium Chloride Solutions

  • Hygroscopic, attract moisture from the air to keep road “wet”. Very low cost
  • Corrosive, kills plant life, can get slippery, washes away with rain, good for arid climates

Lignin Solutions

  • Becomes sticky, attracts fines, naturally derived “tree bark”, hardens surface-crust
  • Toxic to plant/wildlife, can be dirty to drive on.

Water Trucks

  • Need to reapply water every few hours, but no chemical costs and non-toxic
  • Expensive to employ drivers and trucks.

Crude oil/Asphalt emulsions

  • Longer term solution, similar to hard asphalt
  • Messy/tracks, toxic/carcinogenic, can wash away into soil/rivers

Polymer Solutions (Gorilla Snot?)

  • Similar performance to Calcium, less toxic
  • Can get very slippery in the rain

 Testimonials

  • “No Wash Boarding on hills and near intersections”
  • “1 year later, harder-more compacted”
  •  “No frost heaving”
  • “Worked better than Calcium for 300 heavy trucks a day”
  • “Calcium and other product trials gone after heavy rains”

Soil Stabilization: Unexpected effect

  • Positive feedback from trials
  • 1 year later, harder-more compacted
  • No frost heaving, no wash-boarding
  • Waterproofing prevents water saturation – freeze/thaw?
  • Reduce the effects of breakup?
  • Sloped surface construction? Pipeline?
