Asbestos

Sidebar Image

Asbestos is a collective name for a number of silicate minerals which occur naturally and consist of fine, microscopic fibres. In the past asbestos was mainly used as a building material and this has left its mark. Not only buildings built before 1994 may contain asbestos, but it can also be found in soil. When too many asbestos fibres are released this can be harmful to health. This is why the use of asbestos has been prohibited in the Netherlands since 1993.
