NY Court Gives 9/11 Cleanup Workers OK to Sue for Debris Exposure, Including Asbestos

Blogs Where Nature Meets Science png

This was extremely personal for me. My good friend and business partner Ed Kranepool (69 Mets) and I were in the tower’s conference room with the Port Authority attorneys just days before that attack took place. We were meeting about us starting to encase the elevator shafts and then continuing to encase all the asbestos spray-on fireproofing on all the structural steel on all the floors where asbestos was present. I had already successfully applied 8,000 gallons of our coatings on over half a million square feet of asbestos containing spray-on fireproofing covering the structural steel in the loading docks. 

Asbestos wasn’t the only toxic material that was in the debris. There were also harmful levels of heavy metals, which included antimony, chromium, arsenic, cadmium, copper, lead and zinc. This mixed array of hazardous debris also contained electronic waste from computers, monitors, batteries and other toxic substances from, paints, PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls) and other toxic substances.

All this lead to the unnecessary exposure that took place during the cleanup.
