Encapsulation by using specific penetrant products aimed at trapping asbestos fibres, restoring the adhesion to the frame, and applying a protective film on the surfaces exposed to weather conditions;

Confinement, a technique often associated to encapsulation, with the installation of sealed barriers, which isolate the components coated with asbestos-containing materials from the surrounding areas.

The process of asbestos-containing materials removal is conducted in each phase, from the management of authorisation formalities by the competent surveillance authorities, as provided for in Legislative Decree 81/08 and subsequent amendments and supplements, to the proper waste disposal and the receipt of certifications for land reclamation. Depending on the type of the material to be removed, on its shape and structure, on the place where it is located and on the surrounding area, appropriate systems are used in order to avoid the atmospheric dispersion of fibres, by using static confinements, dynamic confinements or, if possible, local confinements employing glove-bags. Appropriate preventive and protective measures are taken to better safeguard our highly-qualified staff: disposable protective garments, high-efficiency filter masks, decontamination units, water filtration units, air extractors fitted with absolute filters, measurement of fibre concentration in air by means of continuous air sampling and subsequent analysis. Working procedures are such as to avoid the production and the atmospheric dispersion of fibres in order to ensure the wet removal of the materials, following water absorption, and by means of non-powered hand tools. The generated waste is wrapped up in double sacks, separated, identified and prepared for disposal operations, in compliance with environmental regulations.
