Asbestos remains the largest occupational killer in the UK today. Despite being banned in 1999 asbestos still kills some 5000 workers per annum (UK). Greenwall is developing Asbestoprobe, which is expected to be the world's first handheld analyser that is specifically designed for the detection of asbestos to ensure early warning of the silent killer
THE GLOBAL PROBLEM
Asbestos was used in multiple global products. The challenge across the world is to quickly identify and contain this deadly material.
Current methods of detecting and recording the presence of asbestos are costly, invasive and slow. Physical samples are taken and sent to a laboratory for analysis, this can take 2 days.
Compared to this, Asbestoprobe's is a disruptive technology which uses a point and click approach utilising NIR Spectroscopy and Artificial Intelligence enabling the analysis of asbestos in 2 minutes.
THE GLOBAL SOLUTION
Asbestoprobe takes the existing reporting process using the Asbestoprobe App from 2 days to 2 minutes.
About 125 million people in the world are exposed to asbestos.
In our opinion, the asbestos industry is second only in legislation to 'Nuclear'.
Greenwall's business plan aims to provide an annual software licensing model which grows through recurring revenue year on year.
Greenwall has an increasing Global enquiry database which awaits its launch.
THE GLOBAL MARKET
Asbestos detection has become one of the leading H&S issues of our time. Our opinion is that the annual global market for asbestos management could be in excess of $1Billion, with the UK asbestos market for surveying and analysis to be in excess of £240m.
Hundreds of thousands of tonnes of asbestos are still being mined and used across the globe today.
