Abstract : Following a terrorist attack or industry accident, when chemical agents including chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) are released, immediate response and long-term recovery will require the decontamination. In the event of a large scale chemical emergency, although standard/specialized decontamination products are available, they may either not be readily accessible at affected sites or they may be quickly consumed. Thus, first responders and local authorities need as much information as possible on potential decontamination technologies subjected to specific chemical agents. The project aims at assessing the effectiveness of common commercially available cleaning and neutralizing products on a variety of CBRN contaminated surface materials.
