U.S. EPA, National Homeland Security Research Center, 2018

EPA's Office of Research and Development's National Homeland Security Research Center has organized and hosted an international conference on decontamination research and development since 2005. The 2018 conference was held May 8-10 at EPA's Research Triangle Park Campus in North Carolina. Decontamination is one of the critical challenges that the United States and EPA would face in recovering from a major chemical, biological, or radiological (CBR) incident. The conference is designed to facilitate presentation, discussion, and further collaboration on R&D focused on an all-hazards approach to cleaning up contaminated buildings (both interior and exterior), infrastructure, and other areas/materials. The conference focuses strongly on matters involving CBR threat agents while including all hazard elements.
