Midwest’s EnviroKleen® Alone at the Top of the Dust Control Market

Share Article

With the Bureau de normalisation de Quebec (BNQ) Certification of Midwest’s EnviroKleen application, it becomes the only certified synthetic dust control product on the market.


The BNQ has again certified that Midwest’s EnviroKleen application, a patented synthetic organic fluid and binder technology, meets the BNQ’s standards as a dust control agent for unpaved roads and other similar surfaces. With this recertification, EnviroKleen has become the only synthetic fluid dust suppressant certified for use by the BNQ.

The BNQ certification is one of the most coveted environmental certifications in the industry, and its award demonstrates an environmental excellence unparalleled by other products. As 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. The Bureau then reaches a consensus for certification through a weighted scoring system.

The temporary nature of the award adds rigor to the BNQ’s method. Their certification is valid for only 2 years, and products must be annually screened by the BNQ to ensure continued accordance with ever more rigorous environmental standards regarding critical contaminants, degradation, mobility, bioconcentration, and aquatic, soil, and geno-toxicity.

Indeed, EnviroKleen is set apart as the clear industry-leader for safety, minimized environmental impact, and effectiveness as a dust suppressant and soil stabilizer. It is unique in that it is the only synthetic fluid with BNQ certification available for dust control.

Other dust control methods that hold BNQ certification – such as calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, ammonium lignosulfonate, – are water soluble and are thus at risk of leaching into native soils. While leaching is first and foremost an environmental problem, it also means that these water soluble alternatives are less effective and require more frequent reapplication to the surfaces treated because they wash away with precipitation. EnviroKleen is non-water soluble, rendering it stable and effective even in inclement weather – as a synthetic organic fluid it is indeed biodegradable in natural conditions.

This renewed BNQ certification of Midwest Industrial Supply’s EnviroKleen solution further extends the company’s legacy of environmental excellence. With BNQ approval, the unique set of products and solutions developed by Midwest at their market-leading R&D laboratory will help their customers keep their sites operating seamlessly, with the peace-of-mind that comes with environmental stewardship.
