U.S. EPA. Decontamination of Subway Railcar and Related Materials Contaminated with Bacillus Anthracis Spores via the Fogging of Peracetic Acid and Aqueous Hydrogen Peroxide. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, DC, EPA/600/R-16/321, 2016.

Impact/Purpose:

In the event of a biological incident in a transportation hub such as a subway system, effective remediation of railcars, subway tunnels and stations will require the use of various decontamination approaches. One potential decontamination tool that could be used in such an event is the fogging of sporicidal liquids. The study described in this report builds on previous fogging decontamination research, but with a focus on decontaminating subway railcars and related materials.
