Dust treatment measures are being adopted by municipal and county authorities in these regions, as well as in those on the brink of higher dust exposure. Maintaining dust control equipment has been a key priority of such measures.
Global leaders in mining and metallurgical industry such as Southern Peru Copper Corporation have began testing an advanced microbial dust control technology (EA1) which is developed by Earth Alive Clean Technologies, Inc., a leading Canadian manufacturer of microbial-technology products for eco-friendly mining and agriculture. Other prominent players in the market include; Quaker Chemical Corporation, Nederman Holding AB, Sly Environmental Technology Ltd., JKF Industri A/S, Global Road Technology, Donaldson Company, Inc., and Beltran Technologies, Inc..
Regionally, the growth of the market is classified into; North America, Asia Pacific excluding Japan (APEJ), Japan, Middle East & Africa (MEA), Latin America, Eastern Europe, and Western Europe.
