Recent years saw a growing demand in Uzbekistan for new, cheap, and competitive local products, connected directly with the expansion and growth of mining and metallurgical industry as well as processing industry, and are based on the broad implementation of minerals processing and enrichment.
To produce new, non-conventional, environmentally friendly, and high-quality products, the basaltic rocks are recommended. The growing demand for basalt products contributes to the improvement of integrated basalt minerals processing and to the manufacture of various products on the basis of preset parameters of chemical and physical/mechanical properties of rocks.
In such conditions, solving the above-mentioned issues is an urgent problem that requires comprehensive studies of basalts properties and composition, aimed at further raising local basalt raw materials utilization rate, enrichment and manufacture of new, quality and sustainable products.
