Abstract
Asbestos & asbestiform minerals Health Issues from asbestos Waves of asbestos exposure Asbestos case study – Cook Islands Asbestos case study – Canberra, Australia Potential asbestiform hazards Exposure to asbestiform minerals Erionite toxicity Toxicity factors Erionite – case studies Asbestos contaminated soil – potential volumes Asbestos disposal Hazardous landfill composition Degradation timeline Inorganic substances Inorganic mineral degradation Lowering asbestos toxicity Bioremediation communities Can we bioremediate asbestos? Landfill vs bioremediation Potential bioengineered treatment process Current & future research Conclusions References (1-4 slides)
