Safe 'Green' Decontamination Method Detoxifies Nerve Agents In Chemical Weapons And Pesticides

Recently completed testing by an independent European defence corporation has shown the researchers’ method to be greater than 99 per cent effective when used on the deadly nerve agents Tabun, Soman and VX.
