for the detection of asbestos cement roofs
Asbestos is a highly carcinogenic material present all over our territory threatening our health. It is estimated that, in Catalonia alone, there are 4 million tons of asbestos cement roofs that will have to be completely removed in the coming years.
Having experienced this problem first hand, DetectA is an initiative that was born as a solution to the first major challenge of asbestos eradication: to identify where it is and who is responsible for removing it.
DetectA identifies asbestos cement roofs through a totally innovative model based on the use of neural networks and aerial images.
Detecting the presence of asbestos effectively, efficiently and quickly is possible thanks to technology and allows us to optimize resources to solve this silent threat that affects us all.
WE COLLABORATE WITH:
Mapping in Cubelles
Cubelles, will have its mapping of asbestos cement roofs before the summer.
The town of Garraf has relied on DetectA to identify the roofs with possible presence of asbestos in its territory as a first step towars the definitive removal of this carcinogenic element from its population.
The first big step
As a result of the transposition of different European waste directives, in 2021 the Spanish State will face the approval of a new Waste Law which, apparently from what is stated in its draft, will finally take the first big step towards the eradication of asbestos in our territory.
Farewell to silence
Asbestos is no longer a silent threat.
We have long known about the consequences of asbestos and we have long heard many organizations calling for solutions but, like its fibers, its presence has been invisible to the authorities for decades.
Fortunately, and thanks to the work of several groups, this has been changing for years.
