Dispose of your asbestos carefree with Desabau!
The disposal of asbestos is regulated by TRGS 519. In this “technical rule for hazardous substances” not only the working environment in which asbestos removal is carried out is regulated, but also the work clothing and above all the disposal is prescribed by law!
Asbestos was a very popular material in buildings of various types between 1900 and 1993. Accordingly, it is very likely that asbestos was used in buildings constructed up to 1993. Working with asbestos-containing material can be very dangerous if proper safety precautions are not taken, and can lead to lasting damage to the health of the lungs or even lung cancer. For this reason, the provisions of TRGS 519 must be strictly observed when disposing of asbestos. TRGS 519 summarizes how to behave when disposing of asbestos; among other things, it states that asbestos may only be collected, stored and transported in suitable containers (big bags).
After the ban on the production and use of asbestos, production was switched to an asbestos-free fiber cement. This alternative is harmless to health and is used in the same areas of application. If you find non-asbestos fiber cement that needs to be disposed of, it is advisable to consider a recycling alternative.
What is asbestos?
Asbestos is a collective term for naturally occurring, fibrous minerals. After reprocessing, these yield technically usable fibers. Due to its strength, heat and acid resistance, asbestos fiber has long been considered a “miracle fiber” that provides excellent insulation. Old asbestos fibers, in our country called “red asbestos” and concerning the TRGS 519 is considered dangerous today and must be disposed of according to said TRGS, as already mentioned.
