ROTTERDAM CONVENTION'S COP10: A CASE FOR CAUTIOUS OPTIMISM?

Are years of diligent, science-based representations by the ICA on behalf of a safe and responsible use of chrysotile and in defense of both the spirit and the letter of the Rotterdam Convention finally paying off?

 

THE CHRYSOTILE INDUSTRY CREATED A RESPONSIBLE-USE PROGRAM THAT IS BASED

The chrysotile fibre is encapsulated in a matrix of cement or resin, preventing the release of fibres.
 
More than 90% of chrysotile is used in the construction of buildings in fiber cement and in the making of construction materials.
