Many uses of dolomite in different industries is one of the main reasons anticipated to fuel market expansion over the forecast period. A lot of dolomite is utilised in the building and construction sector. Dolomite from industrial waste is used to create aggregates that have a very high compression strength and resistance to abrasion and other mechanical impacts. In order to ensure the longevity of building structures erected on aggregate foundations and to ensure their safe use, dolomite aggregates must meet a range of criteria and regulations, depending on their intended application.
