Asbestos removal has long been an important topic, and will become even more urgent in the future due to the upcoming industrial transformation under the Green Deal and the European transition to renewable energies. The EU is striving to free Europe from asbestos by eliminating the harmful substance in all member states by the end of 2032. This is alongside extensive energy-related restoration, particularly in Germany. The potential for asbestos must always be assumed in older buildings or plants, which requires advance intrusion into the building matrix that is probably contaminated.
A case for experts: more than 220 million buildings and plants were constructed in Europe before the ban on asbestos. Around 30 million buildings in Germany are potentially contaminated with asbestos.
In asbestos removal, BUCHEN UmweltService can conduct anything from single tasks to the entire process. Our services include, for example, technical reconnaissance with interpretation of results and analysis of the hazard potential. In the field of engineering, we develop registers of harmful substances and restoration concepts. When it comes to operative execution, services are offered as an expert company for activities with “loosely bound” asbestos as per Appendix I No. 2 of the German Ordinance on Hazardous Substances. We are also experts in developing low-emissions processes as per TRGS 519, Section 2.9.
Every restoration project has unique requirements. Get in touch and let us advise you on your specific case.
Outside our own portfolio, we can also draw on other disciplines from within the corporate group where needed, including scaffolding, insulation, surface technology and refractory construction.
