Dust suppressant products used to control particulate emissions from unpaved roads are among the technologies evaluated by the Air Pollution Control Technology (APCT) Verification Center, part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program. The critical performance factor for dust suppressant verification is the dust control efficiency (CE). CE was evaluated in terms of total particulate (TP), particulate matter less than or equal to 10 mm in aerodynamic diameter (PM10), and particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 mm in aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5) SynTech Products Corporation submitted the PetroTac dust suppressant to the APCT Center for testing. Tests were conducted at Fort Leonard Wood, MO, during October 2002, May 2003, and October 2003, and the verification report summarizes the results. During the May 2003 tests, the CE was 94% for TP, 98% for PM10, and 90% for PM2.5. During the October 2003 tests, the CE was 74% for TP, 73% for PM10, and 0% for PM2.5.
