Earth Alive Clean Technologies (TSXV:EAC) has begun trials of its EA1 dust suppressant in partnership with a mining operation in Chile.
Headquartered in Montreal, Quebec, the company develops and distributes environmentally safe microbial products in an effort to tackle a variety of challenges faced by the agriculture, mining and infrastructure industries.
Included in its portfolio of technologies is its proprietary EA1 dust suppressant. The product works by reintroducing naturally-occurring microbial compounds into the ground, which then prevents dust from becoming airborne. In addition, EA1 eliminates the need for water application to suppress the dust for up to two weeks.
The organic and biodegradable product is estimated to reduce up to 90 per cent of dust on work sites.
Under the terms of a sale agreement, Earth Alive will undertake a six-week on-site trial to evaluate the efficacy of EA1 at a large open-pit copper mine in Chile.
Michael Warren, CEO of Earth Alive Clean Technologies, commented on the deal.
"We are pleased to begin our third trial valued at approximately C$75,000 with this important international mining conglomerate.
"This validation process will allow Earth Alive to continue to build positive momentum with this important mining group operating around the world," he said.
The agreement represents the third trial with the mining company, each of which has been carried out in a different geographical setting. As such, Earth Alive moves a step closer in the approval process to become a multi-site dust suppressant provider for the company.
Earth Alive Clean Technologies (EAC) is down 4.35 per cent and is trading at 11 cents per share at 12:43pm EDT.
