11th US EPA Intl. Decon R&D Conference
November 19, 2019 - November 20, 2019
Since 2005, EPA’s Office of Research and Development’s National Homeland Security Research Center (NHSRC) has organized and hosted an international conference on decontamination research and development. Decontamination is one of the critical challenges that the United States and EPA would face in recovering from a major chemical, biological, or radiological (CBR) incident. The conference is designed to facilitate presentation, discussion, and further collaboration on research and development focused on an all-hazards approach to cleaning up contaminated buildings (both interior and exterior), infrastructure, and other areas/materials. The conference continues to focus strongly on matters involving CBR threat agents, but also includes all hazard elements. URL:https://www.hdiac.org/event/11th-us-epa-intl-decon-rd-conference/
