Title: H202 and Steam are most promising decontamination technologies

Jim Agalloco provided a comparison of various decontamination strategies. Based on availability, performance and cost he concluded that; • Steam – uses hospital sterilizers, available capacity unknown, potential effects on non-critical components unknown. • Vapor – retrofit room with H2O2 generator external, capacity could be extensive, potential effects on non-critical components unknown. • Expecting a variable mix of N95 masks in any load, the effects of steam or H2O2 can’t be accurately predicted. There are a lot of conflicting reports. Impact on strap elastics is likely the major factor in reuse. He is concerned about whether the H202 systems which are presently being employed will be efficient enough. His presentation was recorded and is available separately.
