The objective of this limited-scope Statement of Need (SON) was to develop a fluorine-free surfactant formulation for use in Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) fire-suppression operations. Specifically, the goal was to address the following research needs:
The projects listed below were selected to address the objectives of this SON. Additional information on individual projects can be found by clicking the project title.
New fluorine-free surfactants will enable sustained manufacture and use of AFFF by meeting environmental requirements while maintaining equivalent performance to ensure safety of DoD personnel at airfields and onboard ships.
