This document presents an analysis of selected technologies that have been tested for their potential effectiveness in decontaminating a building that has been attacked using biological or chemical warfare agents, or using toxic industrial compounds. The technologies selected to be addressed here fall into three broad categories: o Liquid-based topical agents, including hypochlorite (bleach), aqueous chlorine dioxide, aqueous hydrogen peroxide, and a proprietary product (TechXtract). o Foams and gels, including Sandia Foam and Decon Green, CASCAD, and L-Gel. o Gaseous and vapor technologies (fumigants), including chlorine dioxide gas, vapor-phase hydrogen peroxide, paraformaldehyde, and methyl bromide.
