Vermiculite Processing Plants resulting in Asbestos Exposure in Arizona
W.R. Grace/Solomon’s Mines and Asbestos Exposure in Phoenix Arizona
The W.R.Grace/Solomon’s Mines located in Phoenix processed asbestos-containing vermiculite from Libby, Montana between 1964 and 1992. The plant is still in operation today but processes vermiculite from safer sources. Those that were of risk to exposure to asbestos included those who not only worked at the site but also those who lived with the employees of Solomon’s Mines. The neighborhood surrounding the site was also at-risk to exposure to asbestos due to the activities and the Solomon’s Mines that released asbestos into the air.
Ari-Zonolite Plant and Asbestos Exposure in Glendale, Arizona
The Ari-Zonolite plant located in Glendale, Arizona also processed asbestos-containing vermiculite from Libby, Montana between approximately 1951 and 1964. As with Solomon’s Mines, those that were at risk were the employees and families of the employees. The neighborhood surrounding the site was also at-risk for exposure to asbestos during the plants operation.
