A Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) conducted on Dustex®, magnesium chloride and calcium chloride when used for dust suppression of gravel roads concluded that Dustex is the most sustainable alternative.
Life Cycle Analysis for dust suppression: Dustex vs salts
NORSUS, Norway’s leading independent research institute for LCA and other environmental impact analyses, performed this study in 2019. The LCA includes seven impact categories.
Dustex has the lowest impact in five categories and is the overall most sustainable choice of the three products - with clearly lower CO2 emissions and consumption of fossil fuels.
