ABSTRACT
Developing devices for dust suppression one should consider important factors, such as the size distribution of transferred dust, duration of exposure in residential areas. Often the total amount of dust emissions may exceed the estimated figure for maximum permissible emissions, but their share transferred in sanitary protection zone of dust is negligible. Tailing dump of Kovdor MPE is one of the largest in Russia. The construction of dust dispersion halos was performed using a universal program calculation of air pollution “Ecolog” (Russia). Based on a comparison of dispersed compositions tails similar in composition tailing dumps in Russia, it can be concluded that in the beach area of the Kovdor dump share of dust tranfered to the territory of settlements has ranged from 10 to 40%. It was found that the maximum diameter of the particles carried by the territory of the city under consideration is 50 microns. We can conclude that under the conditions of the object the development of special devices for dust suppression is required.
