The 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)
The 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
