The origin of COUNTERFOG is found in a research project of the Seventh Framework Program of the European Commission of a consortium of up to 10 international institutions led by the professor of the University of Alcalá José Luis Pérez Díaz, who is a promoter partner of the new EBT.

A multidisciplinary team of 10 institutions from Spain, UK, Sweden, Germany, Czech Republic and Bulgaria has developed from scratch up to TRL6 a new intrinsically environmental-friendly and electric- compatible technology to quickly counteract these agents called COUNTERFOG.


Counterfog is a system designed to provide a rapid response for collapsing all kind of air-borne dispersed agents –including Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear agents as well as solid micro-particles like those in smoke generated by Diesel engines and other non-exhaust traffic particles.
