CANTON, Ohio, Jan. 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The BNQ (Bureau de normalisation du Québec) has issued two new BNQ Certifications to Midwest Industrial Supply, Inc., for Soil-Sement® Engineered Formula. Soil-Sement Engineered Formula joins Midwest's EnviroKleen®, giving Midwest three separate BNQ Certifications.

Accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the BNQ Certification provides the users of Soil-Sement Engineered Formula proof that Midwest has submitted its products to a quality assessment process conducted by an independent third party and is committed to user safety, and a promise of competence, quality and reliability. BNQ Certification is recognized internationally as one of the highest testing standards for environmental performance.  

The certification process is rigorous, requiring each product to meet eight exacting standards regarding ecological impact, including ecotoxicity, aquatic, soil and geno-toxicity, critical contaminants, degradation, bioconcentration, and mobility. After products are tested and transparently scored for these criteria, the BNQ board must reach a consensus as to certification, guaranteeing a product to be environmentally benign. Any product deemed environmentally benign means it has no negative impact on the environment whatsoever.

Notably, the BNQ certification is only valid for two years, and products must be reviewed annually to ensure continued compliance. Midwest's other BNQ-certified product, EnviroKleen, has repeatedly been re-certified, demonstrating Midwest's longtime commitment to maintaining our place as the worldwide leader in environmentally sound dust control.

These Soil-Sement certifications bolster that legacy, and reaffirm the efforts of Midwest's industry-leading R&D department in creating ecologically-harmless, effective, and highly versatile products. Indeed, Soil-Sement is not only powerful as a dust control application, but also stabilizes unpaved roads with unparalleled load-bearing strength -- it builds roads just as well as it minimizes airborne dust.
