Chemical, Biological, Radiological and nuclear events are a serious risk for humanity. These include natural, accidental and deliberated man-made threats severely affecting human health as well as the environment on a large scale. For years ago, a team of institutions from Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Sweden, Bulgaria and the Czech Republic started from scratch the […]
First place for Counterfog in the competition Most Significant Applied Science Achievement 2017 at the Institute of Solid State Physics, Bulgarian Academy of Science for the development of SPCE sensor with liquid layer for contamination in fog.
COUNTERFOG European project led by UAH demonstrates the successful results of its CBRN decontamination technology on the Workshop celebrated on the CIEMAT installations in Madrid on the 24th and 25th of October “Chemical, Biological and Radio-Nuclear episodes represent an unpredictable threat with indiscriminate effects and immediate consequences for citizens”, exposed María del Mar Hidalgo from […]
In the present workshop on CBRN response and decontamination, first class experts will present the hottest keys, will analyse the incoming future and will discuss as well the best strategies for prevention and mitigation. The new Counterfog technology will also be introduced through practical demonstrations applied to concrete scenarios analysing its potential usefulness. Chemical, Biological, […]
The Spanish media group TVE1 visited Counterfog installations on the Ciemat center on Madrid. They were extremely interested in the system ability to clean the air by the simple use of water droplets. Jose Luis Pérez Díaz, as project main coordinator, explained the journalists Counterfog working principle and guided them through the Counterfog installations. They have […]
First prize in the 1st Scientific International Conference of CBRNE (SICC 2017) for the poster FOG DYNAMICS. Juan Sánchez García-Casarrubios was awarded as its first author. The poster described the Fog Dynamics Laboratory working principle. The deadly properties of most of CBRN warfare agents are based on their dispersed condition. Particularly the efficiency of BRN agents […]
COUNTERFOG PROJECT wins the 9th competition of creation of technological- based- companies of the Universidad de Alcala (UAH). The system, in a prototype phase, is designed to clean air from nitrogen dioxide and suspension particles generated by diesel, but also, for the decontamination of dangerous CBRB agents from the air in case of a terrorist […]
COUNTERFOG will be a new, rapid response system for collapsing all kinds of dispersal agents (smoke, fog, spores, etc.) by using a fog made of a solution that could eventually contain any kind of neutralizing component. It will be a permanent installation in large public buildings like railway stations but also a portable COUNTERFOG for […]
