SOY-BASED DUST SUPPRESSANT: A HARVEST SOLUTION FOR GRAIN ELEVATORS
The Illinois Soybean Association (ISA) funded a pilot project this fall involving the application of a soy-based dust suppressant at Illinois grain elevators. BioBlend’s EPIC EL (EsterLink) Dust Suppressant is a soy-based natural ester dust control product uniquely designed to greatly reduce fugitive dust created by vehicle traffic, industrial and agricultural equipment, material handling equipment, as well as many other tumultuous dusty environments. Primary applications are unpaved gravel roads, agriculture roads and fields, dairy, orchards, vineyards, mining haul and access roads, material handling equipment, and more.

“ISA was proud to partner with BioBlend and the Grain and Feed Association of Illinois to conduct the pilot project this harvest season,” says Mike Levin, ISA Senior Director of Government Affairs. “We are pleased that BioBlend could be tested as an effective solution against challenges with dust at elevators this fall, and hope that others will stay tuned for the results of the pilot project and try it out for themselves.”
