Development of Biobased Class B Fire Retardant

Agricultural Utilization Research Institute/Liana Palaikis

This project will develop and scale-up for manufacture agricultural component-based, next generation Class B and/or Class A/B firefighting concentrate compatible with on-truck liquid delivery systems. Class B fires involve flammable liquids, gases, solvents, oil, gasoline, paint, lacquers, tars and other synthetic or oil-based products. There is a need for improved Class B products that are safer for the environment and exhibit improved stability when applied to a fire for greater product efficacy
