SYNOPSIS

The human activities in their various aspects cause a change in the natural air quality. This change, results more marked in very populated and high-industrialized areas. Quarrying activity has no excuse. Dust are ubiquitous at quarry sites and poses environmental hazard to the workers and the surrounding community.

Quarry activities such as drilling, blasting, crushing, screening, materials handling and transporting in combination of air movement generate dust. Undeniably, there are too many variables and factors to be considered for dust prediction from quarry, including influences of local meteorology and topography. As such, statistical and modeling techniques are extremely appropriate and useful for the prediction of dust pollution at quarry site. In this technical talk, participants will be exposed to a study conducted by Mineral Research Centre (MRC) on dust pollution and control as well as software and mobile apps that have been developed by MRC.
