Proposal Title: A Novel Wide-area TIC Neutralization Technology
Topic Number: H-SB04.2-004
Phase: Phase I

Abstract: Current methods of decontamination have shortcomings regarding their deployment. Cost of storage, requirement of personal protective equipment during its employment, related damage to substrates it is applied to, and clean-up costs are some relevant examples. This project aims to develop a wide-area TIC neutralization technology based on nanoparticles of mixed ionic-electronic conducting metal oxides and electrochemical methods. All components of the material are non-toxic, non-corrosive, thus this product is safe to use, and is friendly to the environment. The results of the planned Phase I work shall provide sufficient proofs for establishing the concept feasibility. Should the Phase I effort become successful and a Phase II project be funded, we will in the Phase II optimize the formulation of the material and the operation mode of the novel TIC neutralization technology, and field develop and conduct a commercially viable laboratory lab-scale demonstration for at least two wide-area TIC neutralization protocols.
