The paper presents the methodology and results of a field testing program to quantify the long-term efficiency of chemical dust suppressants applied to industrial unpaved roads. Three generic categories of suppressants were evaluated: water, a water-based petroleum resin, and a water-based asphalt emulsion. Knowledge of the long-term performance of dust suppressants is vital in determining a cost-effective program for reducing emissions from open dust sources. The information presented helps determine cost-effectiveness values for the chemicals evaluated.
