Abstract:

On-site activated decontaminants are ideal because the activated solution is highly reactive and can quickly destroy chemical and biological warfare agents, but prior to activation the decontaminant ingredients can be safely stored for years, shipped, handled and have a long shelf life. TDA"s electrochemical decontamination (EC-Decon) technology utilizes electrical activation of an inert salt solution to produce a reactive and effective decontaminant solution. Before any decontaminant with claims of efficacy against a biological organism can be sold in the U.S., it must be registered with the EPA under FIFRA. The EPA regulates these items to ensure that they are effective, safe to use and are employed correctly. This solution has already been shown to be effective against anthrax spores using EPA-approved efficacy protocols. The goal of this project (Phase I and II) is to demonstrate that the EC Decon system can safely accomplish the chemical and biological decon objectives stated in the solicitation under real world conditions. TDA and our partner, Battelle, will carry out toxicology tests to confirm that the system will operate safely (supporting EPA registration), and tests with CW and BW agent surrogates on coupons simulating real world conditions to confirm effective decontamination.
