Why are asbestos fibres so dangerous?
Asbestos was a widely used isolation material in the 1950-1970s, which later has been found out to be highly hazardous. A huge industry has been built around the removal of asbestos. As asbestos is a highly hazardous material, it must be removed with caution, and absolutely not with whatever kind of equipment and lack of protection.
How hazardous are asbestos fibres?
If there is a risk that asbestos fibres may be released in the air, then they must be captured at their point of escape or their source, then disposed of without any hazard for persons or the environment. Particles with diameters between 0.1-3 µm are the most critical for the lungs. A large part of these will be stored in the lungs if inhaled. Quartz, Asbestos, PCBs and Cobalt are examples of hazardous and carcinogenic substances with very small dust particles that stay suspended in the air in many workplaces.
