The objective of the Air Pollution Control Technology (APCT) Verification Center, part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) Program, is to verify, with high data quality, the performance of air pollution control technologies. One such set of air pollution control technologies consists of products used to control dust emissions from unpaved roads. Dust suppressant products are, in general, designed to alter the roadway by lightly cementing the particles together or by forming a surface that attracts and retains moisture. Control of dust emissions from unpaved roads is of increasing interest, particularly related to attainment of the ambient particulate matter (PM) standard. EPA issued a new ambient standard for PM in 1997 that specifies new air quality levels for particulate matter less than or equal to 2.5 micrometer (:m) in aerodynamic diameter (PM2.5).1
