Aggregate Road Dust Control

Dust Control Benefits

Road dust – commonly generated by unpaved roads, like gravel roads – can contribute to health, safety, and road functionality issues. Below are the benefits of using our dust abatement products for road dust control, to prevent and reduce dust on unpaved and unsurfaced roads.

  • Reduced Health Issues – Breathing in small dust particles can contribute to serious medical issues, so dust abatement is an important step towards maintaining health and safety. Our dust control products prevent and reduce the release of small airborne particles.
  • Healthy Crops and Vegetation – Dust can affect photosynthesis, respiration, and other critical functions necessary to sustain healthy plant life. This is not only an important environmental issue, but also a serious business issue for industries such as agriculture. Crops not damaged by dust are more likely to thrive, while dusty farm roads might contribue to low crop yields.
  • Better Driving Visibility – Dust suppression products prevent and reduce the amount of dust that is kicked up from traffic and high winds. If left uncontrolled, that dust would limit driving visibility.
