We conduct leaching test s on mining waste according to the standard requirements of the host countries, and determine whether it will dissolve and release toxic and harmful substances after longterm immersion, weathering, and stacking, as well as possible risks to the surrounding environment, communities, and water bodies. For solid waste with higher risks, we control and treat it according to the classification of hazardous utilise; for solid waste with low risk, we control and utilize it according to the classification of general solid waste. We use the most stringent benchmarks to identify and manage emissions risks, to prevent environmental incidents caused by incorrect handling of emissions.
To protect the health, safety of our employees, contractors, and surrounding communities and good environment and prevent dust from escaping, we have formulated scientific dust prevention and control measures for different working areas, including underground ventilation and dust removal, dust control during crushing and conveyor belt transportation, dust collectors, and dust removing sprayers in open-pit blasting or transportation. We have developed comprehensive utilisation of a large amount of flue gas and dust generated in smelting production, which not only prevents the waste of resources, but also greatly reduces air emissions and the impact of our production activities. The economic benefits brought by the comprehensive utilisation will further promote the continuous improvement of the recycling rate of waste heat, nitrogen and sulphur oxides, and dust in various projects.
