The use of secondary polymers to ensure environmental safety storage of mineral waste ore-dressing and processing enterprise in the Southern Urals
The article contains results of the research in the field of reducing the negative impact of technogenic massifs’ hazardous wastes on the quality of environmental components. The waterproofing of the technogenic massifs foundation with the help of the material, based on the mixture of secondary high-density and low-density polyethylenes is offered as a technology of reducing the negative impact. Research methodology includes experimental methods in field and laboratory conditions. Samples of surface water and ground water in the area of the study object were selected during the research, chemical analysis was performed, quality of natural waters was estimated, the physical and mechanical properties of polymers, as well as resistance to the aggressive environments impact were investigated.
