Development and Modelling of Dust suppression Technology

Grant


Scheme


  • Linkage Projects

Abstract


  • Fugitive dust emissions are common in industry and lead to significant financial losses and negative impacts on community health. Dust suppression technology is showing great potential to minimise dust emissions in the mining sector and associated infrastructure, such as road, rail and port facilities. This project aims to apply a unified and scientific approach to the development of sustainable and cost-effective dust suppression formulations for specific products and applications, based on wettability, moisture retention, agglomeration and flowability. The advancements in theory, knowledge and experimental methodology from this project will enhance productivity and health and also benefit other researchers, designers and plant operators
