Industrial process for producing quartz and other quartz-containing raw matherials with reduced toxicity relatted to respirable crystalline silica (RCS)

Industrial process for producing quartz and other quartz-containing raw matherials with reduced toxicity relatted to respirable crystalline silica (RCS)

New industrial process for producing quartz and other raw materials that contain it, with a low respirable crystalline silica (SCR)-related toxicity. The invention, funded by the European Union through the LIFE Programme, consists in the dry processing of quartz, in which its particles are treated with a covering agent so as to reduce or eliminate the toxicity due to RCS. The main aim of this process is to improve the health conditions in certain work settings by curbing diseases that result from exposure to RCS.
