Asbestos never again. We believe in a future asbestos-free.
We develop, produce and sell highly innovative waste treatment machinery
CIRCULARITY Production cycles which can regenerate
FORESIGHT Positive impact towards society and environment, both in the short and long term
CREDIBILITY Qualified team, working by means of safe and innovative technology
1,45 M€ FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Our technology for definitive asbestos treatment was developed under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) of the European Commission, with excellent results. At present, we are at industrial R&D stage.
ASBESTOS FIBER (1) IS TREATED IN THE REACTOR (2): NEW INERT MATERIAL (3)
Our reactors convert asbestos into inert material by means of a movable treatment system; such treatment completely eliminates the carcinogenicity of asbestos itself, generating a secondary raw material. Inertisation process consists in heating asbestos at high temperatures (> 1000 ° C); asbestos fiber completely changes its chemical structure and is transformed into a new material, which has been proven to be not harmful to human health and the environment
