Abstract

This work investigates the emission of dust in quarries within the project of "SLIM - Sustainable Low Impact Mining: solution for exploitation of small mineral deposits based on advanced rock blasting and environmental technologies” financed by the European Commission within the Horizon 2020 program. A bibliographic analysis of the specialized literature describes and analyses the state of the art in the production of dust in the different phases of the operation, as well as the existing methods for its mitigation. Then, the measurements taken in a previous project related to the measurement of dust generated in quarries are taken as a baseline. Furthermore, new solutions are proposed and analysed to reduce the emission of dust in the blasting using laboratory tests and in situ tests in two open-pit quarries. The efficiency of these solutions will be tested in a new campaign and compared with dust measurements made during a first campaign of blasts. These include occupational and non-occupational dust measurements. RESUMEN Este trabajo investiga la emisión de polvo en canteras dentro del proyecto de “SLIM- Sustainable Low Impact Mining: solution for exploitation of small mineral deposits based on advanced rock blasting and environmental technologies financiado por la Comisión Europea dentro del programa Horizonte 2020. A partir de un análisis bibliográfico de la literatura especializada se describe y analiza el estado del arte en la producción de polvo en las distintas fases de la operación, así como de los métodos existentes para su mitigación. A continuación, se toman como base las mediciones realizadas en un proyecto anterior relacionado con la medición de polvo generado en canteras. Además, se proponen y analizan nuevas soluciones para reducir la emisión de polvo en la voladura a partir de ensayos en laboratorio y de pruebas in situ en dos canteras a cielo abierto. La eficacia de estas soluciones se probará en una nueva campaña y se comparará con las mediciones de polvo realizadas durante la primera campaña de explosiones, las cuales incluyen mediciones de polvo ocupacional y no ocupacional.
