)-- Soilworks’®, Durasoil® (synthetic dust control fluid) awarded the world’s most prestigious BNQ certification for superior quality.Soilworks®, LLC
is the innovator and manufacturer of Durasoil®
dust control agent. Durasoil® is a revolutionary state-of-the-art innovation; engineered for today's challenging dust control needs. This colorless and odorless, ultra-pure synthetic fluid, which is formulated to meet the highest standards of environmental efficacy, is now proudly verified for superior quality by BNQ (Bureau de normalisation du Québec
Recognized as the world’s leading accreditation program for dust control agents, BNQ provides the highest level of environmental and ecological efficacy as well as quality superiority certification available to date for dust control products. Their standard includes dozens of the most challenging, extensive and exhaustive evaluations in the industry. These comprehensive evaluations comprise of chemical complexity, bioconcentration potential of critical contaminants, degradation levels, aquatic toxicity, soil toxicity, genotoxicity and many others.
Due to Durasoil’s® revolutionary water insoluble formulation, BNQ initially was unable to perform the traditional evaluations applied to water based dust palliatives. Therefore, Soilworks® coordinated with Exova Laboratories
and BNQ to develop the most advanced testing and evaluation methods ever administered for dust suppressants. As a result, Durasoil’s® certification now provides users with a host of unique capabilities never before available under BNQ accreditation for controlling dust.
Soilworks’® CEO and Chairman, Chad Falkenberg added, “What is particularly unique about the BNQ process is its strict testing protocol which mandates their officials to obtain random product samples on-site from the manufacturing plant on an annual basis for testing and re-certification. It is the only protocol that audits raw material quality control processes, supply chain feedstocks and all associated records. This is the first and only of its kind to eliminate the fraudulent bait-and-switch tactics suppliers have utilized by providing intentionally misrepresentative ‘clean’ samples to labs in order to obtain false, but favorable results; which could never be obtained with a true field representative sampling of their product. Finally, BNQ has delivered a long awaited standard that protects buyers by providing the independently verified assurance that Durasoil® is and continues to be a consistent, dependable and superior quality product.”
Beyond BNQ, Durasoil® has been rigorously evaluated and verified by independent third parties including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Marine Corps, numerous U.S. State Departments of Transportation, NASA, and the U.S. Dept. of Energy.
Durasoil® was originally developed in 2004 by Soilworks® at the request of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to eliminate hazardous landing conditions for helicopters from dust and FOD (Foreign Object Debris). In the field, failure is not an option and the U.S. Dept. of Defense and the United Nations depend on the consistent reliable performance of Durasoil® every day. From intense-use tank trails and lines of communication to forward area refueling bases and unimproved runways, Durasoil® is hard at work saving lives, protecting equipment and boosting morale.
For the mines that must conserve valuable water resources, Durasoil® is controlling dust while saving millions of gallons of water every hour of every day because it will not evaporate and disappear like traditional watering programs to suppress dust. Deep underground you can see the smiles on the miners who don’t have to wear dust mask respirators thanks to Durasoil®.
At the top of the earth in the frozen arctic, where dirt and gravel airfields are often the only means of transportation, Durasoil® maintains compaction by preserving the small fines from blowing away ensuring the integrity of the runways for long-term safe use. Coupled with Durasoil’s® additional certification to Boeing’s strict non-corrosive standards, it is the premier solution for airfields including those operated by Alaska’s Dept. of Transportation where temperatures drop below an astounding -40° F while performing as designed, up to 24 months without reapplication.
Watering to control dust on industrial and commercial sites is short lived, requiring timely and costly continuous reapplication especially under the hot sun and the intense abuse of UV rays. However, it is the insoluble, continuously reworkable, non-curing, long-term effectiveness properties of Durasoil® paired with its resistant formulation against UV rays, oxidation and thermal decomposition that have allowed businesses to focus on progress rather than dust. For demanding intermodal container shipping yards with the world’s largest forklifts to active construction sites with tracked excavators and bulldozers, Durasoil®withstands the abuse that even asphalt would crumble under.
From blue sky mountain tops to deep dark tunnels, frozen arctic to scorching deserts around the globe, Durasoil® covers the earth actively solving dust control challenges throughout the world's industrial, mining, military and commercial markets. Soilworks®sustained participation and substantial investment in the BNQ’s certification of Durasoil®demonstrates its continued and steadfast commitment to integrity, transparency and accountability.
