Dust control is the application of diluted asphalt emulsions, oil-based liquids, chloride salts or organic resins sprayed directly onto or mixed into granular roadbeds. Typically these materials are applied by a vehicle-mounted distribution system. The application rates are variable depending on the product of choice and the material it’s being applied to.
Aggregates, minerals, fertilizers, soils and other commodities stockpiled degrade due to weather. Degradation can lead to material loss, airborne particulates and leaching. Erosion of road shoulders, embankments and stockpiles can cause material loss and environmental damage. Fugitive dust can be hazardous and combustible. Some dust suppressants have anticaking properties.
