"New Foam Defeats Biological Weapons"

July 01, 2000  | 

A new foam, similar to that used by firefighters, has been developed by Arthur D. Little's Technology & Innovation Groupto neutralize the effects of chemical and biological agents such as sarin and anthrax. The foam, recently introduced by a government task force on bioterrorism, is designed to be used at emergency sites by "first responders" such as biohazard teams, paramedics, and bomb squads, but will also be beneficial in industrial accidents. The product will soon beon the market for $10 per gallon once a corporate partner can be found.
