A portable asbestos detector that could save thousands of lives – project ALERT – European Commission – 7 March 2014

EU Research Projects – ALERT

“A European research project, ALERT, has developed an asbestos detection device that could save thousands of lives. The project team is building the first real-time, portable detector of asbestos fibres in the air. The low-cost ALERT Rapid Asbestos Detection (ARAD) tool, which will be the size of a hand-held drill, is expected to enable construction workers and surveyors to test for the mineral’s presence in building and demolition sites.”
