  • D. mccartyi strain BAV1 is able to reduce vinyl chloride, a toxic contaminant that usually originates from landfills, to ethene by using a special vinyl chloride reductase thought to be coded for by the bvcA gene. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mass decontamination (abbreviated mass decon) is the decontamination of large numbers of people, in the event of industrial, accidental, or intentional contamination by toxic, infective, caustic, polluted, or otherwise unhealthful or damaging substances. (wikipedia.org)
  • Foam
  • 5. A decontamination system according to claim 1 , wherein said first part includes a foam promoter and is contained in a trigger-operated foam dispenser. (google.com)
  • Decon foam often comes in multiple bottles, that, when mixed, combine to form the decontamination solution. (wikipedia.org)
  • Decon foam is also useful as an area denial weapons medium for crowd control, e.g. to make the ground slippery, as well as to reduce visibility (as a fog), such as with the CASCAD product. (wikipedia.org)

  • walls
  • 8. The system of claim 1 , further comprising a decontamination chamber containing a media for reducing contaminants, the decontamination chamber being positioned in the filter container over the first, second and third chambers, wherein the upper and lower walls of the decontamination chamber contain openings to allow gases emitted from any of the first, second, and third chambers to rise through the decontamination chamber and escape from the filter container.

  • shutdown
  • In 2008, 14 shutdown commercial power reactors were planned for or had completed DECON, 11 were in SAFSTOR, 3 were in ENTOMB and Three Mile Island unit 2 was defuelled and will be decontaminated when Unit 1 ceases operation. (wikipedia.org)
  • The International Atomic Energy Agency defines three options for decommissioning: Immediate Dismantling (Early Site Release/Decon in the United States) allows for the facility to be removed from regulatory control relatively soon after shutdown. (wikipedia.org)
  • wherein
  • 4. A decontamination system according to claim 3 , wherein said record sheet comprises a logbook which carries predefined spaces for receiving adhesive labels from each container for said sterilising wipes. (google.com)
  • 6. A decontamination system according to claim 1 , wherein at least one of said first part and said second part includes an indicator reagent that changes colour when the parts are mixed together. (google.com)
  • 7. A decontamination system according to claim 6 , wherein said first part and said second part have a different pH and wherein the indicator reagent changes colour in response to a change in pH when the parts are mixed. (google.com)
  • 8. A decontamination system according to claim 1 , wherein one of said first part and said second part comprises a solution containing sodium chlorite or sodium chlorate and the other comprises an acidic solution. (google.com)
  • 2. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein the step of reacting the biocatalyst with the organic contaminant further produces an off-gas stream, the off-gas stream containing methane, air, carbon dioxide, and an organic contaminant. (google.com)
  • 6. A method in accordance with claim 1, wherein the organic contaminant is at least one type of chlorinated alkene. (google.com)

  • process
  • There are five different types of dry decontamination, each of which can be used in conjunction with others to remove up to 100% of all suspected contaminants: Scraping Absorbent Materials Adsorbent Materials Vacuuming Pressurized Air Scraping is a process of decontamination in which the bulk contaminant is removed from the victim or environment using a spatula, wood tongue depressor, or other handheld implement. (wikipedia.org)
  • device
  • Keep the contaminant characteristics in mind when selecting a purge device, for example, do not choose a purge device that will cause volatilization if the contaminant of concern is a volatile compound. (hawaiidoh.org)
  • potential
  • Because of their ubiquity and resistance to spacecraft decontamination, bacterial spores are considered likely potential forward contaminants on robotic missions to Mars. (wikipedia.org)
  • In addition, dry decon operations are expedited by allowing for the quick removal of contaminants from the victim's skin, which reduces the amount of time a victim is in contact with the contamination (which therefore reduces the potential harm caused). (wikipedia.org)
