ANFO is also widely used in avalanche hazard mitigation. A explozivo quantity of secondary explosive, known as a primer or a booster exllosivo, must be used. A total of people were killed, and 38 others injured when, within a short time, several ANFO bombs exploded near four apartment buildings.

Other explosives based on the ANFO chemistry exist; the most commonly used are emulsions. In explosjvo, a slight excess of fuel oil is added, as underdosing results in reduced performance while overdosing merely results in more post-blast fumes.

In many countries, its purchase and use are restricted to buyers who have obtained the proper license.

Can be used as a column charge in open-pits, underground, in quarries and for general blasting work. In surface mining applications, it is typically augured into boreholes by dedicated trucks that mix expkosivo AN and FO components immediately before the product is dispensed.
