Final Report - PORPARDET (Portable Particulate Detection Device)

Project ID: 222590
Funded under: FP7-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the PORPARDET project which was funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project was an REA supported collaborative project between EU companies and research organisations working together with the objective of developing novel portable asbestos detection systems using innovative concentrating and analytical methods. The report covers the historical significance of the problem of asbestos noting that despite the ban, people are still suffering as a result of legacy products and the need for detection systems. The major results are covered in the project report.

One of the main cost benefits for Europe will be the potential savings in health care, insurance and litigation costs associated with diseases from asbestos exposure, increased sales of equipment and ultimately more jobs. The capture of data can be used for historical purposes that will assist workers gain compensation from negligent employers.
