Asbestos Containing Materials (ACM) and Refractory Ceramic Fibres (RCFs) are toxic and when inhaled can cause serious illnesses, including lung cancer, and asbestosis (a type of pneumoconiosis). Since the mid-1980s, use of Asbestos has been banned and in most territories its use is strictly prohibited and the subject of specific regulation. Unfortunately, due to its use among manufacturers and builders as not just a permitted but a preferred material up to well into the 20th century, asbestos is now a widespread problem. The resistance to heat and chemical damage in raw and cemented product form make this type of toxic materials waste disposal very challenging.
Tetronics offers waste recovery plants to meet a growing number of waste management challenges including the treatment of Asbestos & Refractory Ceramic Fibre. The process chemistry in Tetronics’ waste recovery technology is designed to separate and destroy the hazardous components leaving a non-hazardous material. The remaining material is an inert product called Plasmarok™ that can be employed in a range of applications, such as a simple construction aggregate, enabling our customers to extract value from their waste and reduce landfill liabilities. The robust level of construction and minimal number of moving components delivers outstanding plant availability and longevity. The near zero waste outcome of the recovery process also has exceptional environmental and commercial credentials and can be considered as a future-proof solution removing the business risk associated with unknown future landfill availability and disposal costs.
Tetronics delivers asbestos waste solutions for asbestos disposal, asbestos waste management and asbestos treatment.
