Title Destruction of unusable explosives in mining regulations
Original title Vernichten unbrauchbarer Sprengmittel aus der Sicht der bergbeh÷rdlichen Bestimmungen [in German]
Bibliographic information July-Sep. 1975, Vol.41, No.3, p.81-88. 19 ref.
Abstract Review of the development of technology and regulations applicable to the destruction of unusable explosives in the Fed.Rep. of Germany. Experience gained by explosives manufacturers has led to the use of combustion as the commonest method. Accidents have however occurred, necessitating special regulations in the interest of users without experience in destruction of explosives. The Directives issued in 1975 by the Hessen Mines Authority are examined. They prescribe detonation as the chief method of destroying explosives. However, the solution most to be recommended is return of the material to the supplier.
