Dust Stop Featured in NCBI Article on Road Dust Control

Dust Stop® was featured in an NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information) on road dust control. According to the article, there are more than 3.9 million miles of roadway in the United States and depending on the area of the country you are travelling in, as much as 70% of that road mileage is unpaved.

Studies have shown that as least 20 different human allergens, including molds and pollen, exist in dust that is stirred up from paved roads. Results would be similar, if not worse on unpaved roads. Particles found in road dust can become lodged in the upper respiratory area and may cause severe irritation. Particles have also been linked to some respiratory cancers. The article further examines different dust suppressants on their effectiveness and overall impact on the environment. Dust Stop® was featured as the solution of choice for road dust suppression.
