The risk assessment for the human health of airborne mineral fibres, including asbestos minerals, is a complex task. WebFPTI is a browser-based software written in Python that allows users to calculate an index of toxicity and pathogenicity potential of mineral fibres based on their crystal-chemical-physical properties. WebFPTI can be a powerful tool for both academy and environmental/health institutions to classify the carcinogenicity potential of (respirable) mineral fibres, so that specific actions aimed at protecting workers and general public can be fostered.

Abstract

The risk assessment for the human health of airborne mineral fibres, including asbestos minerals, is a complex task. WebFPTI is a browser-based software written in Python that allows users to calculate an index of toxicity and pathogenicity potential of mineral fibres based on their crystal-chemical-physical properties. WebFPTI can be a powerful tool for both academy and environmental/health institutions to classify the carcinogenicity potential of (respirable) mineral fibres, so that specific actions aimed at protecting workers and general public can be fostered.
