Title: Batelle is decontaminating 80,000 masks per system

The Battelle CCDS Critical Care Decontamination SystemTM is now operating at Battelle’s West Jefferson, Ohio facility under the EUA and is capable of decontaminating up to 80,000 respirator masks per system each day using concentrated, vapor phase hydrogen peroxide (VPHP). The respirator masks are exposed to the validated concentration level for 2.5 hours to decontaminate biological contaminates, including SARS-CoV-2. Battelle CCDSTM can decontaminate the same respirator mask up to 20 times without degrading the mask’s performance. Healthcare systems that wish to use Battelle CCDSTM will collect worn respirator masks daily in accordance with an approved procedure and courier these respirator masks to Battelle CCDSTM operations as systems come online. The PPE will be labeled with a barcoded serial number for tracking the chain-of-custody throughout the process. This ensures that the hospital system receives its own masks back. Each respirator mask will be marked with the number of times that mask has been processed. Hospital systems and other agencies who wish to learn more about this system are asked to visit www.battelle.org/decon or contact Battelle directly at: 1-800-201-2011. Batelle is planning to ship machines to NY and other States to supplement the Ohio Facility.
