New Delhi: More than 3,700 kilograms of explosives were used to demolish the Supertech twin towers in Noida. The administration used controlled implosion techniques to raze the buildings to the ground on Sunday. The Supreme Court ordered the demolition of these buildings which were built on the Emerald Court Society premises in violation of the norms. Both the buildings were taller than the Qutub Minar in Delhi and turned into debris in nine seconds.

The waterfall implosion technique, used to demolish the buildings, ensures that the structure collapses inwards and into itself as the waterfall hits the earth. It also takes a very short time to demolish a building without disturbing the nearby residences. Therefore, the demolition was smooth.
