The American Industrial Hygiene Association has announced the release of the white paper on corrosive drywall. The document serves to identify the problems posed by corrosive drywall, as well as the role of science in understanding the resulting safety and health issues.

“This AIHA White Paper on the corrosive drywall problem was developed by the Corrosive Drywall Project Team comprising members of the Construction and Indoor Environmental Quality Committees and is additionally sponsored by AIHA’s Biosafety and Environmental Microbiology Committee,” according to the AIHA.

Corrosive drywall was installed in tens of thousands of individual homes as well as larger buildings as early as 2001. Most of these structures are located in, but not limited to, Florida, Louisiana, and Virginia.
