ABSTRACT:
The article presents an overview of ways of solving the problem of dusting of raw materials and fine-grained waste collected on landfills. The specific physicochemical properties of loose materials and unfavorable atmospheric conditions are responsible of heavy pollution of the environment by dust, posing a threat to human health. The types of materials that are potential sources of dust pollution are presented. The methods of eliminating and limiting dusty of loose powders, often used in industry, engineering, communal and emergency situations, are discussed. Examples of domestic and foreign solutions to prevent dusting and to protect the waste deposit from erosion are shown. In conclusion, existing safety techniques have been found to be effective in preventing dusting of raw materials and waste.
