The lab adheres to international ASTM Test Standards when possible. Over the years, ErosionLab has conducted research and development projects in conjunction with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, various Universities, the state of Wisconsin, local counties and even competitors. Each year, hundreds of people receive training at ErosionLab with hands- on experiences through seminars, internships and other programs.


Green in Every Way


The American Excelsior Company maintains a one-of-a-kind ErosionLab®


, which is the


largest privately owned testing, research and development facility of its type. Built in 1997, ErosionLab covers 40 acres in Rice Lake, Wisconsin, and has the capacity to run multiple large-scale rainfall, channelized fl ow, sediment control and vegetation studies concurrently.


Few companies commit the time, money and resources to operations designed specifi cally to benefi t the environment and environmental research. As Kurt Kelsey explained, “American Excelsior was a ‘green’ company long before it was the trendy thing to do. To put it into perspective, we have an entire division (the Earth Science Division) that is focused on providing erosion control, revegetation and sediment control solutions to help the environment. We continue


“We are constantly working to develop additional biodegradable options for all the markets in which we conduct business. Our latest pledge to Mother Nature is to use only Aspen Excelsior that is certifi ed by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) because we believe in the FSC’s mission to promote environmentally sound, socially benefi cial and economically prosperous management of the world’s forests.”
