Analysis of mineral fibres (i.e. asbestos) in water, soil and waste material using FTIR spectroscopy

Asbestos is a highly heatresistant and non-flammable natural fibre. It has been used as a construction material and for many specific applications. However, since the 1970s, it has been proven to be a human carcinogen known to cause lung cancer. As a result, the use of asbestos was restricted before being banned in Austria (1990) and Germany (1993). Since 2005 the use of asbestos has been banned in the EU.
