LOW-CONCENTRATION HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (LCHP) VAPOR FOR BIOREMEDIATION
Touati, A., F. Delafield, D. Aslett, and A. Abdel-Hady.
EPA 542-R-19-001, 82 pp, 2017

EPA's Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Consequence Management Advisory Division of the Office of Emergency Management and the National Homeland Security Research Center provide information to the response community on decontamination technologies for restoring sites contaminated with biological, chemical, or radiological agents. This report describes the research effort that evaluated the sporicidal efficacy of low-concentration hydrogen peroxide (LCHP) vapor in a typical residential home contaminated with Bacillus anthracis (anthrax). The LCHP vapor was generated from a 3-4% H2O2 aqueous solution in water placed in commercial off-the-shelf humidifiers. The goal of this work was to demonstrate the efficacy of the fumigant distribution method in a full-scale structure and identify the variables that affect fumigant distribution. https://nepis.epa.gov/Exe/ZyPURL.cgi?Dockey=P100WHXT.txt
