Global asbestos management

Asbestos is the collective name for a number of naturally occurring silicate minerals with a fibrous structure. Due to its long lifespan and heat-resistant properties, asbestos was widely used in the construction of buildings and (technical) installations in the 20th century. When processing or removing asbestos and asbestos-containing applications or products, asbestos fibers are released. These fibers form a potential environmental and health risk. Exposure to asbestos fibers can cause serious diseases, such as the lungdisease asbestosis, mesothelioma and other forms of cancer.
