ABSTRACT

In regard to indisputable carcinogenic effects of asbestos species the European Union
prohibited (from January 2005) the usage all kinds of asbestos fibres in member states.
This fact resulted in replacement of asbestos by artificial mineral and synthetic fibres. In
this context large demolitions are realised, frequently unnecessary and a big volume of
wastes and dangerous dust is created. These are mainly hazardous wastes that require an
adequate disposal.
The paper offers a view of the most frequently used methods asbestos wastes are
disposed with focus on physiochemical ways of waste treatment – solidification process.

Keywords: asbestos wastes, hazardous wastes, waste treatment, solidification process
