I Enjoy Watching Videos Of Buildings Being Brought Down By Controlled Explosions,

but that may be a thing of the past if this new product becomes popular,

no explosions, big bangs, or clouds of dust, welcome to the demolition world of Betonamit, it is a non-toxic powder that, when mixed with water and poured in to drilled holes instead of exploding, it “hardens and expands, exerting pressures of 12,000 psi. Reinforced concrete, boulders, and ledge are fractured overnight with no noise, vibration, or flyrock.”

the dry powder is mixed with water, poured into the pre-drilled holes and you just wait overnight, the material expands, all you have to do is scoop up the debris in the morning, above is the short video,

and here is the full version, what a neat idea and alternative to what could be a very dangerous and specialist job.
