A novel environmental restoration method for an

Considering the environmental problems and the availability of reusable resources, a novel method is proposed to restore the environment and ecosystem of abandoned limestone quarries. This method can effectively solve a series of problems, including eliminating or minimizing the potential geological hazards and dust pollution, and solving the land occupation and degradation problems.
