Head of the scientific team for decontamination

The ongoing biological and chemical threats caused by terrorism are followed by new ones, suchas thespreading of resistant pathogens and new zoonoses. Itis thereforenecessary to developand testnew advanced decontamination processescapable of eliminating such threats. Weparticipated inthe 200m3 hall decontamination. Both chemical and biological contaminationwas employed, using sarinas chemical contaminantand Geobacillus stearothermophilusas biological contaminant.The contaminantswere depositedon porous and compact materialsand exposed todecontamination vapor.

Furthermore, we conducted biological decontamination of real resistantgerms from apig farm. Porous construction materials wereused for the experiments. In both cases, the decontamination achievedsuccessful degradation of the contaminants-97% degradation ofsarin, as measured by NMRand MS, as well asover 90% reductionof biological contamination.
