Abstract
Decontamination of chemical and biological threats demands a very reactive solution. It is ideal to generate the decontaminants on-site: the activated decontaminant is highly reactive and quickly destroys chemical and biological warfare agents; prior to activation the ingredients can be safely stored for years, shipped, and handled. TDA's electrochemical decontamination (eClO2) technology utilizes electrical activation of an inert salt solution to produce an effective liquid decontaminant. However, 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 is to acquire the data to support EPA registration of the electrochemical decon technology under FIFRA for claims of efficacy against bacterial spores, including anthrax, so that the DoD can acquire it. For this effort, TDA is partnered with Battelle to complete acute toxicity evaluations that were begun in Phase I, then prepare the data packages needed for EPA registration.
