Mesothelioma and asbestos exposure in Illinois

Mesothelioma is caused by exposure to asbestos, a toxic mineral that has been used in thousands of products among various industries. Asbestos exposure was most common in the workplace, where certain occupations such as construction workers, shipyard workers and auto mechanics could come into contact with asbestos.

illinoisA number of work sites in Illinois have been linked to asbestos exposure. Some of these sites include:

  • Owens-Illinois Plant
  • General Electric Appliance Plant
  • Republic Steel
  • Mobil Oil Refinery
  • Campbell’s Soup Plant
  • Thomas A. Edison Nuclear Power Plant
  • Procter and Gamble Plant
  • General Motors
  • State of Illinois Power Plant
  • Powerton Powerhouse
  • And many more

Asbestos is not fully banned in the United States. Its use is regulated, but it can still be used in some products. One Illinois location, Johns-Manville Corp in Waukegan, was cited by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for asbestos contamination in its Superfund program for hazardous waste cleanup. The discovery was made in 1982, but Johns-Manville ended its onsite operations in 1998. Cleanup was completed in 2002.
