Naturally Occurring Asbestos

Naturally Occurring Asbestos (NOA) occurs in rocks and soil as a result of natural geological processes. Natural weathering and human activities may disturb NOA-bearing rock or soil and release mineral fibers into the air, which
pose a greater potential for human exposure by inhalation.

This EPA fact sheet provides an overview of approaches for reducing exposures to naturally occurring asbestos.
