Project ID: G1RD-CT-2000-00438
Financé au titre de: FP5-GROWTH
Pays: Norway


The product is a technology for the manufacturing of explosives with properties, which contribute to a reduction of fines in rock blasting. The process and resulting explosives product also have a positive effect on the general fragmentation. The test campaign at Nordkalk has shown a reduction in explosives consumption of 5% without any noticeable effect on fragmentation, loading, hauling and crushing. The spillage of explosive on ground during the loading operation has been close to nil.
