Mesothelioma & Asbestos in Alabama

The risk of mesothelioma in this state is somewhat higher than others due to a large number of industries that utilized asbestos in their manufacturing and refining production.

Below is a general list of the amounts and types of locations in Alabama that residents should be aware of because they are known for their asbestos usage and exposure:

  • Almost ten different power plants
  • Six steel production mills
  • Six iron refineries
  • Four refineries associated with petroleum/oil
  • Two naval construction sites
  • Several paper mills formerly owned and operated by Kimberly-Clark Corp.
  • Numerous cement plants which used Asbestos in their mixing process
  • Just shy of one hundred aquifers used primarily to transport water throughout the state reported use of this cement/asbestos mixture in their construction
  • There has not been sufficient testing of these pipelines done in almost twenty years
