RE: dust suppressant for gravel parking lot



Hi Judy -  At WA Dept. of Ecology workshops last winter on biodiesel fuel
mftg/use, (Mr.) Kim Sherwood of WDOE's Spokane office strongly lobbied
against using biodiesel byproduct glycerin as a dust suppressant.  I think
the concern is cumulative effects on groundwater, even for something
apparently as "benign" as glycerin.  Contact Kim for the real scoop:
kshe461@ecy.wa.gov or 509-329-3414

I've been wondering if the considerable amounts of glycerin generated from
biodiesel production might make a good dust suppressant.  Would anyone
hazard a guess?

Waste is a resource in the wrong place.
There is no waste in Nature.

Hi. I have a company looking for a dust suppressant for gravel parking lots.
They are proposing to use the magnesium chloride product below, but are
concerned about using a salt in areas that may be landscaped in the future.

Any suggestions as to what to use?  Your help is appreciated.
