ABC Dust Technology’s innovative dust control & soil stabilization products and research are at the forefront in the prevention of silicosis disease.

Silicosis is an uncurable and deadly disease, which affects nearly 37% of workers underground and in open pits mines exposed to high levels of airborne dust and silica.

Fugitive dust is a serious workplace risk within the mining, construction, infrastructure and farming sectors, leading to investigations by government agencies, research centers, unions and mainstream media.

ABCDust has developed a range of proven dust suppression and soil stabilization products and management tools and software to address the health risks of airborne dust, which could in turn, eradicate airborne related diseases, such as silicosis and black lung disease.

ABC Dust’s range of specially formulated, dust control products work by preventing the generation of dust while stabilizing the treated surface, improving safety and eliminating dust complaints from staff and surrounding communities and villages.

Engineered in ABC Dust laboratories and tirelessly tried and tested, the non-toxic products offer further environmental and community health protection by reducing the damage caused by fugitive dust.

ABCDust applications was measured by third parties, such as DICTUC, from Pontificia Universidad Catolica, which based on a statistical comparison of field data, using Dust Mate laser dust monitors, the test data revealed an improved air quality by reducing PM10-2,5 by 95-98 per cent while independent test results exceed recommended air quality indicators set at 80% by the Chilean Environmental Resolution Act, which lowers considerably the risk of airborne diseases, such as silicosis and black lung.

Compared to conventional processes, ABC Dust’s dust suppression solutions offer other distinct advantages and financial benefits including easy application, operational efficiencies, and long-lasting protection across extreme climatic conditions on a wide variety of soil types and raw material stockpiles without any negative impacts on the environment.
