  Demolition represents a sequence of operations that are referring to removal of the objects. Defect, damage or deformations of the objects are just some of the reasons why it accesses different demolition of building structures. The goal of demolition includes the construction of new objects or simply freeing up space for other purposes. For all these reasons, special emphasis should be placed on the technology of the performance of works. The most dominant technologies that are now successfully applied are demolition technology using explosives and demolition technology using mechanization. In this paper, we will try to select optimal demolition technology of silo that has a specific location.
