Illinois Asbestos Sites

Illinois has been the industrial center of the Midwest for generations as Chicago quickly grew into an industrial powerhouse along with the advances of the Industrial Age. Today it is the fifth most populous state in the nation; two thirds of that population live within the Chicago metro area and twenty five percent of the state’s residents live within the city itself.

Chicago is a critical transportation point because it connects the Great Lakes to the Mississippi via the Illinois River. For that reason Chicago became both a railhead and one of the country’s most important ports – and the home for the U.S. Navy’s Great Lakes Naval Base. It became a major steel mill center, with iron ore from Minnesota and Michigan delivered via the Great Lakes. Following the steel mills came foundries, auto plants and lots of power plants to provide electricity to the massive city and the downstate population centers in Illinois. Oil also came into production in southern Illinois.

Industrial Applications for Asbestos in Illinois

The heavy industries that grew to maturity in Chicago during the twentieth century depended on raw materials from the port and rail lines to distribute products. Most of the steel, oil and chemical plants required heat for their processing lines; much of the equipment used for hot processing was insulated with asbestos. During most of that era, few people were familiar with asbestosis or mesothelioma lung cancer.

Chicago’s weather also made insulation in both commercial and residential buildings a necessity – much of it manufactured with asbestos fibers in the material during the first three quarters of the twentieth century. Chicago was an unmatched industrial center during that era; unfortunately, asbestos was often the insulation of choice for both industrial plants and commercial structures.

Asbestos Jobsite Exposure in Illinois

Below is a large list of jobsites where former employees may have been exposed to asbestos. Damage from inhaled asbestos fibers can result in malignant mesothelioma decades after exposure to asbestos. Heavy use of asbestos products was an unfortunate reality in Chicago’s port, rail yards, steel mills and the industries that grew up around them. This list is only partial, but it provides a sense of the scope of asbestos exposure that Illinois residents and workers experienced over the last eighty or ninety years.

Mesothelioma Asbestos Deaths in Illinois

The federal government’s Center for Disease Control (CDC) did a survey of death certificates from 1979 to 2000 and developed an initial estimate of the number of deaths that could be contributed to asbestos over that period. They did not, however, include cancer deaths from types of cancer that we now know are caused by asbestos. The Environmental Working Group (EWG) took the CDC’s statistics and added some of their own, including a look at what the range of deaths from mesothelioma may have been during that period.

According to the EWG’s study a minimum of 422 people succumbed to asbestosis during that period, and 1,291 to 2,201 Illinois residents died from mesothelioma, the lethal lung cancer caused by asbestos fibersAsbestos-related death rates have continued to climb since 1999, since that was the first year that the federal government began tracking deaths from mesothelioma cancer. Today’s data is based on factual reports rather than estimates that assume death from lung cancer may be from pleural mesothelioma
