The dust reducing agent Dustex, which is made by lignosulphonate, has some more qualities than reducing the dust amounts. In several cases it is shown that the stability is increased. This is documented under some conditions, but some investigations could still be carried out. The use of the product in Greenland has been tried for the first time, and the preliminary test indicates good results. Laboratory test also shows an increased bearing capacity, but some investigations related to the cold climate are still to be done.
