Ecoplant is an ENAEX contribution to the environment,

by using residual lube oils to manufacture blasting agents “in situ” in open pit mines.

This plant allows to dispose of fuel oils to be then mixed “in situ” with blasting agents, to obtain highly efficient Anfo-type explosives for rock fragmentation.

This allows to obtain two essential benefits:

  • Up to 50% saving in diesel oil fuel to manufacture blasting agents, by replacing them with recycled oils.
  • A significant contribution to the environment through the efficient disposal of highly pollutant waste.
