Abstract
The production of asbestos in the United States is estimated to have set a new record-high tonnage in 1971, the projected 132,000-ton production representing a 5-percent increase over that of 1970. Analysis of the world production over the last 20 years shows an average annual growth of a little over 2 percent. Projecting this rate to the year 2000 would call for a cumulative production of 163 million tons, or approximately half of the known reserves. An average growth rate of 6 percent (it is now about 5 percent) would exhaust the known reserves by the year 2000.
