The novel RFCAT technology will allow for safe and rapid decontamination of biological agents on railroad and subway cars. The technology creates biocidal conditions on external and internal surfaces of the rail and subway cars. The technology has been demonstrated on building materials and will be modified for the surfaces found in rail and subway cars. Additionally the system will kill odor and allergy causing molds as well as biological agents. The end users will be passenger and cargo railroad lines, local subway and streetcar operators and airports that have internal rail systems. Another market where the product will be useful is the household and commercial building mold remediation. The cleaning of railroad cars is a $250 million market annually. The mold remediation market is $3 billion annually. The RFCAT technology can effectively decontaminate surfaces coated with bacterial spores in under a minute with 1% of the chemicals needed with existing technologies. The chemicals used in the RFCAT system are environmentally benign and do not embrittle the aluminum shells of subway cars.
