The results of developments in the direction tested in the quarries Ingulets MPC and introduced in Poltava and Irshansk MPCs.

6. Ecological-saving technologies blasting operations at the development hard mineral deposits and the creation of new environmental friendly explosives.

The head of the direction is Strilets Alexander Petrovich, senior teacher of the department, director of the Center of Problems of Blasting Operations.

Solving the problems:

- Development and design of blasting technologies at quarries, including under conditions of decreased sizes of sanitary security zone;

- Blasting technology with protecting of closely spaced important subjects;

- Justification of efficiency and application technology of using clean explosives and their creation.

The results of developments in the direction approbated:

- In the quarries Southern, North and Central Inguletskogo MPCs and in the quarry of the company Mitall Steel. Implementation in these quarries emulsion explosive mark of Ukraine provided decreasing self-cost of blasting operations on 10-15%, increasing productive of excavators on 20%, decreasing dust formation on 60-62%, gas-formation on 65-68%, decreasing output of nitrates in the stratal water in 2,5 times. Actual economical efficiency from implementation Ukrainet at the MPCs more than 25 486 million UAH.

- In the quarries of non-metallic building materials of Ukraine (Kremenchygskogo Quartz, OAO Nikitovskiy granite quarry, Pervomaivsky granite and crushed-stone quarry of the State Concern Inmakom republic of Moldova, Volovetskoe cooperative enterprise Agrodostroy, AOZT UMP Hydroenergostroy quarry, OAO Pervomaisky quarry Granite and others), implementation of technology of blowing by borehole charges in rock minerals allowed decreased lines of sanitary protection zone and safely extraction of abandoned resources of minerals close to residential buildings and constructions.

- During building operations hydrotechnical constructions at the Tashlikskoy GNES technology of blowing and optimization of parameters borehole charges allowed in short terms come to an end of construction and bring in exploitation.

During 2010-2011 years by department of Surface Mining were carrying out 3 scientific researches and 9 cost-accounting scientific research and planning works on the general sum over than 1,2 million UAH.
