||The contaminated demolition site without workers - An illusion?
||Die menschenleere kontaminierte Baustelle - eine Illusion? [in German]|

||A time- and cost-saving method of tearing down buildings highly contaminated with such harmful chemical substances as hexachlorocyclohexane, chlorinated dibenzodioxins and dibenzofurans is described. It is based on enclosing the building on all sides except for the top. A water mist seals off the top and prevents the emission of pollutants. The method was successfully applied to a large, highly contaminated building of a closed-down pesticide production plant in Germany. A crane positioned outside the enclosure took down the building in 25 days. The water used to create the mist was collected at the bottom and passed to a purification plant. Topics: chlorophenols; construction sites; construction work; demolition; description of technique; dust control; enclosure; glossary; industrial buildings; neighbourhood protection; pesticide production; pollution control; toxic substances; water spraying.
