SAFETY

FROM IDENTIFICATION OF THE
POLLUTANTS TO THEIR DISPOSAL

Pollutants such as asbestos, for example, pose a considerable health risk to humans. They are concealed within the most varied of material compounds, building structures and constructions. The decontamination of industrial facilities, production plants, offices or residential property thus demands highly specialised expertise. Prometimpex has 30 years of experience in the area of decontamination. With our own professional fleet of technology and equipment, we are always ready to cater to your requirements. A team of 50 highly trained employees is on hand to tackle projects of any size, from the fire protection seals contaminated with asbestos to complex industrial facilities and real estate properties.

We are legally authorised to carry out this work for customers across Germany. Our scope of expertise includes all the common pollutants. From the initial assessment to a professional disposal, we develop an intelligent recovery plan in close cooperation with you. Thus guaranteeing a safe working and living environment, while restoring the operational status of your property or production facilities. Trust a partner who can deliver more – trust Prometimpex.

HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES

THE MOST VARIED TYPES OF HAZARDOUS SUBSTANCES ENDANGER THE HEALTH OF HUMANS AND THEIR ENVIRONMENT. TAKING ON VERY DIFFERENT FORMS, THEY ARE OFTEN HIDDEN AWAY IN MATERIAL COMPOUNDS AND ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO IDENTIFY BY NON-EXPERTS.
YOU CAN THUS PLACE YOUR TRUST IN OUR EXPERTISE.

ASBESTOS (WEAKLY-/STRONGLY-BOUND)

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral fibre. It boasts a large number of technical properties which are desirable in mainstream construction or fire proofing. As a result, asbestos was used in the most varied of forms and structures. Today, it is common knowledge that these fibres pose a health risk. The use of this carcinogenic material has been prohibited by law in Germany since 1991. Part of our portfolio has thus since included the renovation of asbestos-contaminated properties.
The presence of asbestos can only be proven by analysing material samples and its removal and disposal not only requires expertise but also a specific work permit from the supervisory authorities responsible. Prometimpex has been authorised by the district government of Düsseldorf to deal with every kind of exposure to asbestos.

There are two different forms of this harmful substance: weakly-bound and strongly-bound asbestos. Strongly-bound asbestos mainly appears in the form of asbestos cement. It can be found in the relevant construction and installation elements of façades, roofs and flooring. This strongly-bound form is the easier of the two to remove. This is because the asbestos content is lower at approx. 10 to 15 per cent and the mineral fibres are largely combined with the carrier material.
Weakly-bound asbestos often makes up more than 60 per cent of material compounds. At the same time, the asbestos fibres are less tightly woven into the carrier material. They come loose far quicker and make both removal and disposal difficult. The more serious form of asbestos is often found in any type of fire proofing, as well as in spray coverings, structural panels, building foam materials and textiles.
