Anheuser Busch - Asbestos Encasement
Anheuser Busch had block insulation, which is an asbestos-containing material, that was used to insulate their holding tanks, which was not in very good condition. Their heat exchanger and area piping were also covered with asbestos-containing insulation. The brewery needed to manage this problem in-place, if possible, as the cost of shutting down and removing the hazards would be at a considerable cost versus management in place. Additionally, there was the loss of revenue from the inability to keep their brewing in operation during the removal process to consider.
