Lost airborne dust raises a plethora of issues ranging from health, safety and environmental concerns, to increased maintenance cost and down times, to loss of material and productivity, to factors that affect regulatory compliance and license to operate.

DuPont Dusgon dust suppression agent helps to create a temporary but robust surface layer in which the smaller particles were bound together in a 3 dimensional matrix, thereby preventing them from being blown off.

Once the 3 dimensional matrix is set, the surface layer is not affected by water.

This surface layer or crust remains essentially intact throughout the rail journey but disintegrates to become part of the coal when unloaded and does not interfere with the subsequent handling or the properties of the coal in its use.
