Title: ELECTROCHEMICAL DECONTAMINATION OF AIRBORNE CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE AGENTS IN A DEEP BASE
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: N/A
Award Amount: $372,000.00
 

Abstract:

AN ELECTROCHEMICAL APPROACH TO THE DESTRUCTION OF AIRBORNE CHEMICAL AND BIOLOGICAL WARFARE AGENTS IN A DEEP BASE IS PRESENTED IN THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL. THE PROPOSED ELECTROCHEMICAL FLOW SYSTEM WILL DECONTAMINATE THE AIR STREAM IN THE ANOLYTE AND THE CATHOLYTE SOLUTIONS BY OXIDATION, REDUCTION AND/OR SOLVOLYSIS. THE SCOPE AND LIMITATIONS OF THIS METHOD WILL BE DEMONSTRATED BY CONVERSION OF SEVERAL SIMULATING SUBSTANCES. PHASE II WILL EXTEND THESE STUDIES TO INCLUDE FURTHER REPRESENTATIVES, AS WELL AS BIOLOGICAL WARFARE AGENTS. THIS ELECTROCHEMICAL DECONTAMINATION APPROACH, MAY BE READILY SENSOR-ACTIVATED, AND IS EXPECTED TO ELIMINATE THESE AGENTS RAPIDLY AND COMPLETELY. AN INSTALLATION WILL BE RELATIVELY LOW IN COST AND THE NON-TOXIC CHEMICAL BYPRODUCTS WILL BE EASILY REMOVED.
