1.1 About the Industrial Activity


Stone Crushing activity is a significant industrial sector across the country involved in production for crushed stone of various sizes depending upon the requirement and catering requirement of raw material for various construction activities such as construction of Roads, Railway tracks, Highways, Bridges, Buildings, Canals etc. The existing number of stone crushing units is expected to grow rapidly further in view the growing demand for development of infrastructure such as roads, canals and buildings. The process involved in crushing large size stone boulders into different size of crushed stones depending upon the requirements in the demand sectors. The important stages involved in stone crushing activity are primary crushing, screening, secondary/ tertiary crusher, screening, conveyance, storage of raw boulders and crushed stone and transportation of both ROM & crushed stones. The raw material i.e. raw stone boulders are obtained from mining of the stone from quarries and hand picking etc. Typical process of stone crusher is briefed as below: Mined Stone

Environmental Guidance Manual Stone Crushers

Various types of crushers are used in the stone crushing industry such as Jaw Crushers, Roller Crushers, Cone Crushers, Impactor, and Rotopoctor etc. Generally, only Jaw crushers are used as Primary crushers. For secondary and tertiary crushing application either of Jaw, cone, roller, Impactor or Rotopoctor type crushers are used.

1.2 Typical Sizes of Stone Crushers


There are large variations in the types of stone crusher setup across the country depending on geographical locations, type of demand for crushed products, closeness to urban areas, type of raw material, availability of plant and machinery locally etc. Primarily the stone crusher industry sector could be divided in three categories small, medium & large. The typical characteristics of each category of stone crushers are briefly discussed below Small size crushers stone Typically the stone crushers with a production capacity ranging from 3 to 25 TPH. This category crusher have only one Jaw type crusher used as primary or secondary crusher along with one or maximum two screens Medium size stone Typically the crushers having more than one crusher i.e. one primary crushers and one secondary or one/two primary and two secondary crushers along with one or more vibratory screens are categorized as medium size crushers. Medium size stone crushers will have a production capacity in the range of 25 - 100 TPH Large stone crushers Typically having two or more numbers each of primary, secondary and tertiary type crushers with at least two or more vibratory screens with mechanized loading, unloading conveying operations and producing more than 100 TPH crushed stones .

CHAPTER 5 Environmental Aspects and Guidance


5.0 Sources of Emissions
The typical emission sources during the stone processing are given below: Activity Mining Transportation Stone crushing Process sources Drilling N/A Crushing Screening Conveyor transfer points Fugitive dust sources Blasting Loading and hauling Haul roads Stockpiles Conveying

Emissions during mining activity Fugitive emissions are generated during various mining activities such as drilling, blasting, excavation, breaking and loading etc. Emissions during transportation During transportation of mined stones by heavy vehicles like trailors, trucks, dumpers, fugitive dust emission occur due to movement of heavy vehicles on earthen roads Emissions during crushing operation During crushing operation, generation of particulate emissions is inherent and the emissions are most apparent at crusher feed and discharge points. The greater the reduction in size during subsequent crushing stages from primary, secondary to tertiary crushing, the higher the emissions. Emissions during screening Forceful movement of the crushed stones in the screening process releases fine dust, this dust gets air borne as fugitive dust emissions. The released dust particles escape from the openings around the screen as well as from the bottom of discharge locations. The screening of fines produces higher emissions than the screening of coarse sizes.

Emissions during material handling In the material handling section, various handling devices like feeders, belt conveyors, bucket elevators and screw conveyors are used to transport crushed materials from one point to another. Particulates may be emitted from any of the material handling operations.

Activity Anticipated pollution Loading & unloading Dust emissions due to inter collision between large size stone of ROM boulders. Conveyance The transit moment of the crushed stone from one point to another and return of the screen rejects, contributes for fugitive dust emissions Stockpiles Free fall dust along with the screened stone chips/powder from the conveyor belts and hoppers contributes huge quantity of fugitive emissions Handling of crushed The fine dust adhered to the crushed stone gets released during the stones manual/mechanical loading and unloading stages

5.1 Typical Emission Factors


The typical particulate emission factors for various stone processing operations as per the USEPA are given below: Process operation Uncontrolled emission factor, kg/ton 0.25 and 0.75 Percentage Contribution 4.5 13.6 54.5 9.2 18.2 100

5.2 Pollution Control Measures


The following pollution control measures shall be implemented for abatement of pollution by the stone crusher. S. Unit operation/Area No of operation 1. Crushing units Pollution control measures The crushers should be installed inside a reasonably dust tight housing. If not, the outlet of all primary stone crushers, and both inlet and outlet of all secondary and tertiary stone crushers, shall be enclosed and ducted to a dust extraction and collection system such as a fabric filter Water sprayers shall be installed and operated in strategic locations at the feeding inlet of stone crushers Stone crusher enclosures shall be rigid and be fitted with selfclosing doors and close-fitting entrances and exits. Where conveyors pass through the crusher enclosures, flexible covers should be installed at entries and exits of the conveyors to the enclosure All vibratory screens shall be totally enclosed in housing. Screen houses shall be rigid and reasonably dust tight. Where conveyors pass through the screen house, flexible covers should be installed at entries and exits of the conveyors to the housing. Where containment of dust within the screen house structure is not successful then a dust extraction and collection system should be provided All grizzlies shall be enclosed on top and from 3 sides and sufficient water sprayers shall be installed at their feeding and outlet areas For better environmental protection practices, the energy efficiency and production efficiency must be maximized. For this purpose effective belt scraper such as the pre-cleaner blades made of hard wearing materials and provided with pneumatic tensioner, or equivalent device, should be installed at the head pulley of designated conveyor as required to dislodge fine dust particles that may adhere to the belt surface and to reduce carry-back of fine materials on the return belt. Bottom plates should also be provided for the conveyor unless it has been demonstrated that the corresponding belt scraper is effective and well maintained to prevent falling material from the return belt Except for those transfer points which are placed within a totally enclosed structure such as a screen house, all transfer points to and from conveyors should be enclosed. If the dust not remain confined within the enclosure, water spraying

system should be installed to ensure that the dust does not go out Openings for any enclosed structure for the passage of conveyors should be fitted with flexible seals Storage piles and Bins Wherever feasible, free falling transfer points from conveyors to stockpiles should be fitted with flexible curtains or be enclosed with chutes designed to minimize the drop height. Water sprays should also be used to prevent the dust from going in to air The surface of all surge piles and stockpiles of blasted rocks or aggregates must be kept sufficiently wet by water spraying All open stockpiles for aggregates of size in excess of 5mm must be kept sufficiently wet by water spraying. The stockpiles of aggregates 5mm in size or less must be suitably covered to ensure that the same is not carried away (or whipped out) by the wind Scattered piles gathered beneath belt conveyors, inside and around enclosures must be cleared regularly Material The approach road to site of stone crusher (including the transportation storage site if it is at different place) from the nearest metalled public road for the transportation of raw material/final products must be paved or hard surfaced (e.g. Water Bound Macadam or metalled) Active haul roads inside the works should be adequately wetted with water Exhausts of trucks for transportation of rock materials within the site should be directed upward Wheel cleaning facilities should be provided for delivery trucks leaving the works for the removal of mud Trucks carrying crushed and screened products must have their loads covered with tarpaulin sheets before leaving the premises The handling and storage of the dust collected by the dust collection system must be carried out without fugitive particulate emissions Rock drilling Appropriate dust control equipment such as wet drilling or dust equipment extraction and collection system must be used during rock drilling activities where mining activity is carried out along with the stone crushing Operation and Wetting agents should preferably be added in the water used maintenance in the spraying systems so that water consumption is reduced All spraying systems used for dust suppression must be maintained in good condition and shall be used regularly.

Annexure -5 Greenbelt Guidelines Copy of circular No. F. 14 (4) RPCB/plg/Policy/5804 to 5825 dated 15/07/2004 Entry no. 37 of schedule-I of Environment (Protection) Rules 1986 has stipulated that in respect of stone crushing units, the concerned unit would be required to grow a green belt along the periphery. The Board has also incorporated a condition of 33% of the units area as being required to be covered by plantation, while granting consent to these units to operate under the Air (Prevention & Control of Pollution) Act 1981. However the numbers of trees, species etc and the manner of their plantation have not been specified by either the Board or the Environment (Protection) Rules, 1986. In view of the difficulty being experienced in implementing this requirement, following clarification is hereby issued:1. Trees shall necessarily be planted along the periphery of the area in rows. The unit may also take up additional plantation in other available open areas such as along the road, on unused land etc. 2. The computation of the area under plantation shall be done on the basis of the following norms: i. Tree species like Neem, Pipal, Jamun, Gulmohar etc. shall be deemed to cover 25 M2 areas on maturity ii. Shrubs like Guava, Pomegranate, Jungle Jalebi etc. shall be deemed to cover an area of 9 M2 on maturity. The area likely to be covered by the plants mentioned above shall be computed accordingly. The herbs which require continuous watering for their maintenance shall not be counted to meet the norms though the can be planted by the management as per their need

Illustration: In case of 10 no. of trees like Sehtoot, Siris, Shisham, Babool; 5 no. of Shrubs like Eucalyptus, Ashok, Ber Kair and 20 no of Herbs like Rose, Mehandi, Duranta, Merigold are planted the total area under plantation shall be computed as follows Area covered by trees Area covered by shrubs Area covered by herbs Total Area = = = = 10x 25 = 250 m2 05x 09 = 045 m2 20x 00 = 000 m2 295 m2
