Asbestos is a collective name for several naturally occurring minerals. These minerals are mined from the ground, not manufactured by a chemical process. In the US, the EPA banned most asbestos containing products in 1989. However, that ban was overturned in 1991 by the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Since Asbestos is still being used in manufacturing of building materials and found in many buildings, most states currently require an Asbestos Inspection prior to demolition or renovations.
