FPInnovations has released a handbook to help assist with the selection of dust suppressants and stabilisers.
The title of the guide is “Maintenance guide for unpaved roads – A selection method for dust suppressants and stabilisers. The authors are L Beaulieu, P Pierre, S Juneau and G Legere. The guide was published in October 2011 (Ref: Guide-2011-10-31).
The guide is aimed at forest road network managers who are considering treating unpaved roads with dust suppressant or stabilisers. It will assist with the selection of products and with determining optimal application rates based on the characteristics of the road (or section of road) selected for treatment. The results published in this guide form part of the FPInnovations CARRLo (Cheminsd’Accèsaux Ressourceset Routes Locales) research project. The guide can be downloaded for a small fee from the FPInnovations website at http://feric.ca/en/index.cfm?objectid=3BE44DE1-C103-F272-84C60574E49D95DA
