Evaluation of blast efficiency in aggregate quarries

Evaluation of blast efficiency in quarrying of aggregate stones is one of the most important decisions that should be made by quarry operators for productivity assessment. The regulatory authorities also evaluate blast efficiency for environmental safety compliance. In carrying out this task, there is usually a conflict of interests between the quarry operators and the regulatory authorities.

Construction Companies, Quarries Face Energy

Companies in the construction business in Illinois are arguing against tougher monitoring of porous rock quarries that are being reclaimed by being filled with “clean construction-demolition debris” (CCDD). Road builders, engineers and the like say Illinois has enough quarry regulations and that additional monitoring would place an undue financial burden on companies.
