What is Asbestos?

Asbestos is a general term for a group of natural materials differentiated by their composition:

  • White Asbestos – Chrysotile
  • Blue Asbestos – Crocidolite
  • Brown Asbestos – Amosite

Asbestos is a mineral with the unique property of being fibrous. It occurs naturally in the geology of many places including Canada, South Africa, Brazil, Italy, Russia, Greece and Cyprus. It is mined and the asbestos containing rock is milled to separate it from the mother rock. It is relatively light and is conveyed in an air stream to cyclones and filters where it is graded.

The qualities of Asbestos have been known for more than 2000 years and it has been used for hundreds of purposes- Fire protection, Insulation, Sealing etc. After the Second World War, there was a great increase in its use primarily for the manufacture of Asbestos Cement (AC) Sheets and Pipes, Fire Protection of Steel Structures, and Acoustic Treatment of Ceilings.

The health hazard of asbestos dust was known already at the beginning of the 19 th century but it being a cause of lung Cancer only became clear much later. This resulted in decisions by the 1970s in the United States to stop using Asbestos and to find alternative materials.

A similar decision was taken in the European Community towards the end of the 1990s and its use has been stopped in nearly every member country.

This decision taken to stop the use of Asbestos, its removal and dumping, resulted in a new hazard because of the dangerous and unhygienic ways in which it was done. As a result, the work of Asbestos Removal (Asbestos Abatement) can only be carried out by contractors specially trained and certified by Government Environmental Departments.
