The mining industry, minerals processing, transport and export infrastructure sectors are facing increasingly difficult challenges in the near future, such as sustainable development and operation (e.g. environmental emissions, social/ cultural impacts, economics). This paper describes some of the new technologies that are being researched, developed and employed to minimise dust emissions by addressing dustability and dust generation mechanisms. It also presents some results from the research being undertaken on the measurement of the dustiness of bulk materials.
