Northern Ireland to use incineration by-product to backfill halite mine
Published: Friday, 04 December 2015
The large caverns created by halite mining in Northern Ireland could be backfilled with an incineration by-product, according to planning documents released by the Irish Salt Mining and Exploration Co.
The Irish Salt Mining and Exploration Co.
Ltd (ISME), which operates the Kilroot rock salt (halite) mine
in County Antrim, Northern Ireland, is to utilise underground
air pollution control residue (APCR) recovery facility, which
would see APCR used to backfill parts of the salt mine.
