MINING SLUDGE FROM POST-EXCAVATION PROCESSES
Problems related to the management of mining sludge can be multiplied, but we propose good solutions. We offer technology, the implementation of which will find practical application and will contribute to improving not only air quality but also the environment and our health. Our goal is to implement an effective and currently the only technology in the world through which we get rid of problems associated with post-excavation waste. Reproduction by various companies and their concepts of getting rid of mining sludge with a greater or lesser calorific value seem like a cry to heaven. Improving transportability through granulation and quality by adding binders is not and will never have an impact on improving quality. It is through greed and lack of appropriate technology that we are forced to accept smog. What is it then? How does it affect our organisms and the environment? If these “sorcery tricks” are available to people who use these refined afterburners in the form of sludges in their grate stoves, and this happens in large household areas, we should not be surprised that we have smog. This is the result of an economic exploitation in which leading companies bypass the law with the help from other institutes.
INDOLENCE FOR THE ENVIRONMENT IS AN ACT OF ARROGANCE TO HUMANITY
Post-excavation waste is and will be a waste. And that's how it should be treated. The companies dealing with this process only perform services. And we should pay careful attention to this process because then they are not owners of waste but only act in agreement with the owners of the mines. What happens to heavy metals and toxic elements? Granulating companies give certificates ... There is only one question. Has anyone examined the ashes and at least once examined the chimney fumes from the furnaces where the granules are burnt? We have physical and chemical tests of such sludges and we know what we are dealing with. Companies that only pull the wool over our eyes, apparently DO NOT KNOW or do not want to know. There are many publications on the oxidation of elements and various chemical compounds in combustion technology.
POST-FLOTATION WASTE FROM POST-EXCAVATION PROCESSES
WHO publishes annual reports on the harmfulness of emissions and the sources of their creation. We can clearly state that what has been called granulate with increased calorific value and originating from sludge refinement is a co-cause for the formation of smog in agglomerations, and certainly, such pseudo-technologies contribute to environmental and climate pollution, and that is why its use should be banned. And that is why companies dealing with this subject will never meet the challenges imposed by the legislator and ignoring them by avoiding regulations and clever nomenclature such as "Smokeless Burning", or mixing with sewage sludge to produce anthropogenic soil, earn a lot of money. Such unfair practises and poisoning of the environment and people should be PENALIZED. The biggest misunderstanding is among people from the world of science.
The waste is “deposited” on over a thousand hectares of the lake to which there is no access and a few kilometres before the zone is a sign notifying that you enter it with your own responsibility. A catastrophe happened there once. And there is only one question we can ask ourselves. When will it happen again? What is the mine doing? What is it waiting for? We have the technology for the safe disposal of such waste. What does it mean? It is a chimneyless and non-waste installation that was created for such a mission. It can separate various metals contained in post-mining silts and sludges, and vitrificate all minerals and quartz contained in this stream of waste into basalt-like slag devoid of all heavy metals and dangerous compounds. Suitable for road ballasts and in various branches of construction with a designation according to the waste code as the PRODUCT obtained.
