  8. Design of Low Cost, Highly Absorbent Activated Carbon Fiberts for Air/Water Purification

    SBC: EKOS Materials Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The two most critical resources for soldiers in the field are breathable air and potable water. U.S. troops face increasing risk of exposure to chemical and biological warfare threats as poorer nations turn to lower cost chemical and biological weapons for their arsenals. Despite the increased threat from these toxic agents, gas mask technology has remained virtually unchanged over the past sev ...
