The AeroSolver method for asbestos abatement represents a new level of efficiency for the market. 

A higher percentage of particles are removed as compared to today’s conventional methods, reducing inhalation hazards for workers and occupants. AeroSolver requires significantly less water: achieve a marked reduction in use of natural resources(water for continuous wetting, wetvacs to reclaim the water, electricity to power sprayers, vacuums, fans and air scrubbers). Less chance of subsequent water damage.

  • Requires a smaller labor force
  • Eliminate the need for a team of workers to vacuum up flooded areas during remediation
  •  Simple vacuuming or wiping removes the surface particulates, as well as the low amount of "amended water"

This unique process saves money by reducing labor, water & electricity consumption compared with traditional removal methods. We are saving natural resources at a time when the market is looking for green alternatives.

It is estimated that a 25% reduction of the normal cost for asbestos abatement can be achieved with this new method.

Savings will increase with project size such as building renovations where old buildings are gutted to core and shell or demolished.

Traditional methods involve flooding the area with amended water that is sprayed in the air to help keep particulates down.  These formulations often evaporate too quickly which leads to more water usage to reach the goal of dust suppression.  Water damage may result in adjacent areas adjacent areas. Anyone who has ever done asbestos abatement in multi-story buildings renovated many times knows this nightmare. A team of workers is needed to vacuum up the flooded areas as remediation takes place.  

The new method for asbestos abatement greatly reduces the chance of water damage. A dilute solution is aerosolized in the demolition area using a special formulation whose formulation captures the airborne particles and weighs them down for subsequent removal by ordinary means. Simple vacuuming or wiping removes the surface particulates and the low amount of "amended water" without gluing the particles to surfaces. This is real source removal, leaving clean air.

Remediation or abatement can be performed under a neutral air, meaning no bank of energy-consuming air scrubbers is needed for many projects. Only the decontamination chambers including a shower require negative air pressure differentials in many cases.
