There are countless examples in many applications and environments, but they all have the same thing in common — substantial, proven results. That’s why Midwest EnviroKleen® meets state, territory, country and company standards for approvals and certifications:
Advanced Environmental Dust Control Solution
Created in our laboratory, EnviroKleen® was the first Synthetic Organic Dust Control® product on the market. Unique in the industry, this product has a binder system that captures fines and keeps them locked into the surface, preventing fugitive dust from escaping.
EnviroKleen’s synthetic fluid and polymeric binder interlocks and durably binds surface aggregate and fines together through both cohesive and adhesive mechanisms. As fines are generated, they are captured, preventing them from escaping as dust.
95% DUST CONTROL (OR MORE!), WITH A DURABLE, LONG-LASTING SURFACE.
Midwest EnviroKleen® protects the environment while cleaning away nearly all your dust problems.
Invented in our laboratory and patented with benefits you can only get from Midwest.
EnviroKleen® captures fines and keeps them locked into the surface.
The industry’s leading dust control product also creates a durable, low-maintenance surface for village, haul, access roads — and more.
EnviroKleen® is the FIRST and ONLY synthetic dust control system with a polymer-based Kleen Binder™ system. This proprietary technology locks fines (aka, fugitive dust) in place to preserve a more permanent surface. So, critical road surface fines cannot escape into the atmosphere. This combination makes for a better, “kleen”-er environment. Envirokleen has proven to increase CBR 30 days after application by over 55% on Alaska E-1 aggregate in laboratory testing
Virtually eliminate dust and get a long-term, high performing surface for many situations: unpaved municipal and township gravel roads, mine haul roads, industrial laydown yards, gravel runways, construction sites, parking lots, landing zones, indigenous village and community roads, wetlands, and baseball diamonds.
In each of these environments (and many others), the advanced chemistry of EnviroKleen® protects and preserves the structural integrity of the treated surface. Since fines are captured within the surface material, fugitive dust becomes a thing of the past.
95% DUST CONTROL (OR MORE!), WITH A DURABLE, LONG-LASTING SURFACE.
ADVANCED CHEMISTRY CHANGES EVERYTHING.
Midwest’s complete program preserves fines, saving time and money from being wasted on temporary dust control measures.
Whatever the surface — whether roads or other environments — EnviroKleen® offers a proven alternative to palliative, frequent and ongoing water-based dust control efforts.
OUR BINDER SYSTEM CAPTURES FINES
Midwest’s proprietary synthetic fluid with polymer-based Kleen Binder™ system coats, interlocks and durably binds surface aggregate and fines together to form a tight, durable and dust-free matrix.
FINES ARE LOCKED INTO THE SURFACE
Delivers both an adhesive (a powerful attracting force between different kinds of molecules) and a cohesive (with the same types of molecules) dust-binding mechanism.
DUST IS TRAPPED
Since fugitive dust can’t escape, it will not enter the surrounding environment of the treated area.
After treating using our EPA-certified, industry-leading “Kleen” synthetic dust control system, you can expect immediate and drastic improvements.
- Industry used to be frequently interrupted to treat access roads. Now, personnel who had been hauling water for treatment after treatment can spend their time hauling goods to sell.
- Gravel runways used rut and blow away, regularly needing more materials brought in to rebuild. Now, surface life can increase up to 5-7 years.
- Uncontrolled road dust used to negatively impact a wetland’s surrounding ecosystem. Now, the Midwest erosion control program reduces dust between 80-95%. This can be the difference between your ecosystem thriving or disappearing.
- Vehicles on village roads used to constantly stir up dust. Now, people can breathe better and drive more safely.
PROTECT HEALTH, PROTECT ROADS.
Durable, long-lasting fines preservation beats temporary any day (particularly when those days turn into years of superior performance). Better still, a program that’s built around preserving fines serves as a long-term method to protect the wellbeing of the community and reduce the long-term cost of traditional dust control activity.
EnviroKleen® is different because it doesn’t simply damp down dust for a short period. Traditional dust control methods are rudimentary treatments that must be frequently re-applied, which results in escalating maintenance costs. Instead, Midwest preserves fines by capturing them with a patented “Kleen Binder” binder system and keep them in place over the long term to do its job.
PROTECT HEALTH AND THE ENVIRONMENT
> Improve air quality by reducing nearly all fugitive dust
> Increase safety through better worksite and road visibility
> Safeguard the ecosystem with an organic formula that meets EPA standards
> Does not damage trees and vegetation
> Does not contaminate rivers, streams or lakes
> Enduring performance strengthens structural integrity
> A smooth surface avoids rutting, potholes, erosion
> Reduces ongoing maintenance and equipment
Midwest EnviroKleen® is the only choice for superior dust control and sustainable environmental stewardship.
When the dust clears, you know that EnviroKleen® is the clear choice for dust control. Thanks to Midwest’s polymer-based Kleen Binder™ system, dust is trapped. The result is a pavement-like surface with great durability and longevity. Beyond this, there are even more reasons to choose EnviroKleen® for your unpaved roads and gravel surfaces.
- Creates strength with longevity; enhanced by traffic
- Cost-effective control of PM10 and PM2.5 from open fugitive dust sources
- Works with all types of soils and aggregates
- Will not track onto public roadways or stick to vehicles
- Colorless and odorless
- Can be reworked without reapplication
- Does not evaporate or leach out of the surface
- Performs well at extreme temperatures
- Can be stored at temperatures as low as -50° F and as high as 140° F
- Readily biodegradable in natural environments
PERFORMANCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL CERTIFICATIONS
EnviroKleen® works fast! You may use the treated surface immediately after applying, though it will take up to 2 weeks to completely coat the aggregate. Like all Midwest formulations, it’s also environmentally friendly, so it can be used in areas with wildlife and vegetation. Additionally, EnviroKleen® has been independently tested and certified:
Environmental Technology Verification
US EPA Environmental Technology Verification test data verifies that EnviroKleen® is safe for people and the environment as well as effective in suppressing PM10 and PM2.5 levels. No other synthetic fluids have achieved this designation.
EnviroKleen® holds the Bureau de normalisation de Quebec (BNQ) Certification. A rigorous and impartial third-party provider of international environmental standards, the BNQ provides a transparent and uniform process: each product is evaluated according to eight stringent parameters that evaluate its ecotoxicological impact.
Boeing Document D6-17487
The non-corrosive properties of EnviroKleen® has been certified by Boeing Document D6-17487, the most stringent corrosion standard in the United States.
EnviroKleen® holds certifications from Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, State of Washington Department of Ecology and the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.
Clean Water Act
EnviroKleen® complies with requirements of the Clean Water Act and National Pollution Discharge Elimination System and realizes fines preservation for surface stability and dust control.
EnviroKleen® meets the criteria for the term synthetic as established by the US EPA for sediment toxicity, biodegradability, PAH content, aquatic toxicity, and being oil-sheen free.
