Description:

Report

Purpose/Objective:

The primary objective of this investigation was to determine the efficacy of chlorine dioxide (ClO2) fumigation for inactivating bacterial spores (using a surrogate for Bacillus anthracis) inside a pilot-scale heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) ductwork system. The decontamination efficacy of fogging with peracetic acid (PAA) in an HVAC duct system was also studied as a secondary objective.
