Asbestos remediation

Asbestos remediation and removal services

The operations of remediation of sites contaminated with asbestos represent a complex but fundamental challenge in the context of environmental recovery and remediation.

A correct remediation activity contributes to reducing the risk of asbestos exposure for workers and the surrounding community, improves air and soil quality, and reduces the potential negative impact on public health.
It should be noted that asbestos remediation is a distinct and broader process than simple disposal.

The phases of our service are:

  • preliminary environmental investigations and mapping;
  • design and technical documentation;
  • management of health and supervisory authorities;
  • execution of remediation;
  • environmental monitoring;
  • safety certification;
  • waste documentation.

Customization of the intervention
The choice of the type of intervention needed depends on various factors, such as the size of the contaminated site, the quantity of asbestos-containing material to be treated, and the accessibility of the area. Consequently, the remediation strategy must be adapted to the specific conditions of the site to ensure effective and safe results.

Technologies and procedures for asbestos remediations

The asbestos remediation in industrial environments requires the use of specialized procedures and technologies that include:

  • the identification and analysis of materials containing asbestos;
  • the planning of removal operations;
  • the use of protective equipment for workers;
  • the safe management of waste containing asbestos. 

We at Gesteco guarantee the professional and compliant implementation of the asbestos remediation process.

Asbestos removal procedures must be carried out by specialized and certified companies that strictly comply with all current regulations. Furthermore, it is necessary to notify and obtain authorization from the competent local authorities before starting any asbestos remediation operation.
The management of waste containing asbestos must be carried out in accordance with the rules of disposal provided by the law.
Violation of these regulations may result in legal and criminal sanctions.

Asbestos remediations process

The remediation of sites contaminated with asbestos involves various methodologies or types of intervention, each with its own characteristics and implications.


The removal represents a comprehensive approach, in which the material containing asbestos is completely removed. This method eliminates any potential source of exposure, but it poses a high risk for workers and requires the correct disposal of asbestos waste in a landfill. 

Despite being expensive and risky, it represents the only way to completely eliminate the risk. Once disposed of in a landfill, asbestos will no longer pose a threat to human health.


The encapsulation involves the use of liquids or coatings that encapsulate the asbestos fibers, restore adhesion to the support, and create a protective film on the exposed surface. This method temporarily reduces the risk of exposure but may lose effectiveness over time, allowing asbestos fibers to disperse back into the environment. 
Encapsulation is less expensive than removal and does not produce hazardous waste. However, it requires continuous maintenance to verify the effectiveness of the treatment.


The confinement involves the creation of a hermetic barrier that separates the asbestos-containing material from the occupied areas. This method is expensive but effective, especially when it comes to easily accessible materials. However, fiber release may persist inside the confinement if it is not associated with encapsulation. 
The confinement is particularly suitable for asbestos remediations of circumscribed areas and requires a constant control and maintenance program.


We are registered in the Environmental Managers Register in Category 10B: asbestos remediation activities carried out on friction materials, insulating materials, pressure containers, out-of-use equipment, other incoherent materials containing asbestos

Asbestos remediation

For asbestos remediation and disposal operations, it is necessary to contact a company authorized for asbestos disposal or to rely on professionals regularly enrolled in the Environmental Managers Register in Category 10A or 10B as regulated by article 212 of Legislative Decree 3 April 2006, no. 152.
Only authorized companies like Gesteco can safely carry out asbestos remediation and follow the protocol to ensure zero risk for the building, residence, or shed.

In the field of asbestos remediation, we boast in-depth expertise and extensive experience in implementing all the procedural phases required by strict industry regulations. Our ability to successfully manage every aspect of these complex operations allows us to offer complete and safe solutions for environmental remediation.

Our commitment to workplace safety is an undeniable priority. Every phase of our operations is conducted in full compliance with the strict safety regulations in force. The health and well-being of our workers and the safety of the communities in which we operate are our top priority.

The phases of our intervention

1. Preliminary environmental investigations and mapping
We carry out thorough investigations and detailed mapping of asbestos-containing materials in order to comply with the obligations set out by national and regional laws, by taking representative samples for subsequent qualitative and quantitative analysis to assess the concentration and nature of asbestos in the materials.
Our service includes:

This data allows us to fully understand the contaminated environment and develop precise and personalized work plans that comply with all environmental laws and regulations and protect public health and the surrounding ecosystem.

2. Technical Design and Documentation
Design and preparation of technical documents, including Work Plans in accordance with Article 256 of Legislative Decree 81/08. These documents are submitted to the competent Supervisory Office (Occupational Safety and Environmental Prevention Service) to obtain the necessary authorization to start remediation work.

3. Management of health and supervisory authorities
We coordinate communications and cooperation with local health companies and competent supervisory bodies, ensuring compliance with all regulations and control provisions.

4. Remediation Execution
We carry out environmental remediation work, strictly following current technical regulations to ensure the safety and proper removal of asbestos.

5. Environmental Monitoring
We conduct environmental monitoring, including the use of membrane filters, to conduct detailed analyses and assess the environmental impact of remediation operations.

6. Safety Certification
We handle the issuance of returnability certifications, attesting that the areas subject to remediation have been made safe and comply with safety regulations.

7. Waste Documentation
We provide copies of the hazardous waste identification forms containing asbestos as proof of legal and ecological disposal in authorized facilities.
The waste generated from the asbestos disposal process is disposed at our authorized plant in San Michele al Tagliamento (VE).
