In the early 1990’s, Pennzoil, Co. developed a product to address ongoing dust control issues for the mining industry. The outcome of years of research was PennzSuppress® D: a unique, patented product designed to safely control dust, stabilize soil, and control erosion from silt run-off from unpaved roads, construction yards, parks, fields, forests, etc.
Many dust control products at that time (and even today) were made with inadequately refined, potentially carcinogenic petroleum sludge which was diluted with flammable, highly volatile solvents. Other dust control solutions contain chemicals which are corrosive to vehicles and other equipment which are in contact with treated areas and harmful to the environment.
Dust suppression and soil stabilization aids the environment
With the continued trend toward stricter enforcement of health, safety and environmental regulations, PennzSuppress® D has become increasingly important for industries and government entities dealing with soil erosion and dust control issues. Not only is it compliant with the Clean Air Act, PennzSuppress® D is proven to be a cost effective way to reduce dust-related health and environmental concerns, extend equipment life, and conserve water –perhaps our most precious natural resource.
In 2011, PennzSuppress Corp. was formed and purchased the PennzSuppress brand, patents, and trademarks, but continues to utilize American Refining Group as our manufacturing and product certification partner. The new company is committed to creating a cleaner, healthier environment for us all.
PennzSuppress D is manufactured by American Refining Group (ARG), to ISO 9001:2008 specifications. The refinery, which is now owned by ARG, was founded in 1881, at its current location in Bradford, PA. American Refining Group has been manufacturing PennzSuppress D to the highest industry standards for almost 20 years. The combination of manufacturing and testing at ARG ensures that PennzSuppress D will work to the high standards which have won numerous certifications by various authorities for 20 years. Each order of PennzSuppress D is tested and certified by ARG to ensure that every drop is the same, from order to order and year to year.
PennzSuppress® D is becoming the gold standard for effective and environmentally friendly dust suppression and soil stabilization. As environmental requirements become tougher, it is PennzSuppress Corp’s mission to make it easy and cost effective for our clients to be environmentally responsible in dust control. With the help of PennzSuppress, grass grows better on hillsides, soil can be effectively stabilized, and dust stays on the ground– where it belongs.
According to PennzSuppress Corp. President Chuck Johnson, “With droughts affecting numerous parts of the world, water is becoming an increasingly precious resource. Thus, it is imperative that we control dust and stabilize soil with more permanent, eco-friendly solutions. We are proud that PennzSuppress® D has been extensively tested and proven to be safe for workers and the environment. It was the first dust control solution to achieve certification by the California Environmental Protection Agency. In addition, PennzSuppress® D has been approved by a number of the toughest government agencies and has proven to save 80% or more of the water used in normal dust control applications.”
