At least the tempera- tures have moderated some since last weeks frigid cold spell which lasted for about a week. Weather watchers tell us it is the coldest win- ter since 1996, and it could well turn out to be the snowiest since then also. If you are more than 16 years old you will surely remem- ber that one.

Highs in the mid teens and lows in the low teens, Currie EDC Markets DUSTLOCK World-wide By Carolyn Van Loh Sentinel Tribune Environmental Dust Control. Inc.(EDC) of Currie was born m 1996. Northeastern Murray County farmers Howard Hamilton, Robert Nelsen. and Arland Moger. took advantage of an opportunity that has resulted in a prod- uct that is drawing interest world-wide. DUSTLOCK is a dust suppressant that is an environmentally responsible solution to unwanted dust. Hamilton, Nelsen. and Moger emphasize the important role the Minnesota Soybean Growers Assoeiation(MSGA) staff had in develop. ing DUSTLOCK. MSGA researchers had discovered that soapstoek, a low-value byproduct of soybean refining, was suc- cessful in suppressing dust. Hamilton and Nelsen were discussing finding a company to market the dust suppressant when one of them said. What if we did it ourselves? Before long they had enlisted the help of farmer/friend Moger. and EDC was formed. The three farmers know what it is to start a business, attain financing, and develop a market for a product. They agree that there, was a lot of trial and error. We guessed right, said Hamilton. Since the Minnesota Legislature banned the use of waste petroleum oil as a dust suppressant. DUSTLOCK has rapidly become the recommended product to con- trol dust. The MPCA offers three options for business and industry to control excessive dust: asphalt, concrete, and EDC. The partners have faced challenges along the way, but they have successfully weathered each new challenge. The first year we lost a little money, but we learned a lot, said Nelsen. The question faced by the partners now is How fast do we want to grow? Their internet site ( generates interest around the world. There have been inquiries from New Zealand, Australia, Germany, the Air Force. and Canada. Northwest Territory is interested in using DUSTLOCK to control dust in the dia- mond mines.
