Battelle has begun final production activities for the last batch of N95 mask decontamination technology intended to address the Department of Health and Human Services and Federal Emergency Management Agency's urgent needs.

Battelle said Tuesday the Critical Care Decontamination Systems are slated for shipping to 60 locations and that the news comes as the U.S. Air Force's Joint Acquisition Task Force toured a Washington, D.C. facility to assess CCDS operations.

The Defense Logistics Agency recently awarded Battelle a potential $415M contract to deliver the CCDS units, which are designed to utilize vapor phase hydrogen peroxide to purify used N95 masks that may be exposed to SARS-CoV-2 contaminants.

Greg Kimmel, general manager for the CCDS program, said Battelle has received “thousands of requests“ for the decontamination platform which is meant to serve as a buffer for current gaps in the N95 supply chain.

JATF manages the contract with Battelle as well as other reporting and accountability issues related to COVID-19 task force response.
