How it Works

Soil-Sement Engineered Formula®CCT

Formulated with million-molecule nanotechnology that penetrates and seals coal to prevent dust from escaping, Midwest’s Soil-Sement Engineered Formula CCT has proven to be the most reliable and consistent dust-control car topper for coal in transport. It is one of fewer than a handful of approved BNSF vendors.



Soil-Sement Engineered Formula CCT penetrates into and seals coal surface to prevent coal dust from escaping from in-transit coal trains. Soil-Sement Engineered Formula CCT has been tested and verified by Simpson Weather Associates Laboratory for weatherability; BNSF for corrosion, safety, and performance; and Southern Company for burnability. It was also tested and certified by the California Air Resources Board, the US EPA, and the Canada Environmental Technology Verification programs.


  • Exhibits more strength than other polymers
  • Does not crack or break up
  • Protects coal from damaging wind, rain, snow, ice, and ultraviolet rays
  • Does not affect the BTU of coal and has no VOCs
