Testing of Earth Alive EA1(R) Microbial Dust Suppressant Technology in Brazil
MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – June 12, 2017) - Earth Alive Clean Technologies Inc. (CSE:EAC)(CSE:EAC.CN)(CNSX:EAC) (“Earth Alive” or the “Company”), a leading Canadian Clean-Tech company, developer and manufacturer of state-of-the-art microbial technology-based products for sustainable agriculture and mining, is pleased to announce that a full scale test of its EA1™ dust suppressant technology was commissioned by Kinross Gold Corporation (TSX:K)(NYSE:KGC) for its Paracatu Mine site, also referred to as the Morro do Ouro Mine, located in Brazil’s Minas Gerais region.
Dust control is a major issue in the mining industry due to the adverse effects of dust on the environment, its impact on the health and safety of workers, as well neighboring communities. Airborne dust also has serious negative economic and productivity consequences on industrial operations. EA1™ is a 100% organic and biodegradable dust control product that uses the latest advances in microbial technology to prevent haul road dust from becoming airborne.
Kinross’ test order, received by Brenntag Quimica Ltda., Earth Alive’s distribution partner for EA1™ in Brazil, is the first one to be performed in the country. Testing was initiated on June 10, 2017 at Kinross’ Paracatu open-pit goldmine.
Marcelo Soutullo, VP Global Operation for Dust Control at Earth Alive, stated, “We are very pleased to be working with Kinross. Having such an important Canadian-based senior gold producer is a direct reflection of the widespread interest we are now witnessing for our environmentally sustainable dust control program for mining.”
Kinross is committed to minimizing its environmental footprint and the company’s Sustainability Program continuously strives to meet, and where possible exceed, regulatory requirements by developing sustainable programs and evaluating every stage of a mine life cycle to minimize adverse impacts and promote opportunities. Controlling dust emissions in an environmentally sustainable way, and reducing the use of chemicals and water on an industrial scale is consistent with Kinross Sustainability Processes.
