We are suggesting the low-emission blasting technique that focused on the reduction of scrapped materials after blasting. In the blasting method, when the time lags between the detonation of the detonating cord and the ANFO explosive are long, the detonation velocity of the compressed ANFO explosive by the detonation of the detonating cord is higher than the normal ANFO explosive. This result shows that the improvement of the effect of rock blasting might be possible, if we can examine and provide the most suitable blasting condition that fit each the blasting fields.
