ABSTRACT

Evaluation of Expedient Decontamination Options with Activated Peroxide-based Liquid Sporicides   [open pdf - 9MB]

"This project supports the mission of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Office of Research and Development's Homeland Security Research Program (HSRP) by providing information relevant to the decontamination of areas contaminated with a biological agent. This project evaluated "low tech" expedient decontamination options with an Activated Hydrogen Peroxide (AHP)-based liquid sporicide. The AHP decontamination solution was generated in an alkaline environment, but the final product reaches slightly alkaline to neutral pH rapidly, making it safer and easier to handle and substantially less corrosive than bleach-based sporicides."
