The US Army has primary responsibility to protect the warfighter from exposure to pathogenic microbes such as Bacillus anthracis, Listeria monocytogenes, or Escherichia coli, which can contaminate foods or food contact/handling surfaces. Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) inactivates resistant bacterial spores and foodborne pathogens with better material compatibility than other chemical sanitizers, and while minimizing hazards to the user and the environment. The present technology mixes small quantities of two dry powders in water to produce aqueous chlorine dioxide on-site at any concentration desired within minutes. Concentrations can range from 1-10 ppm, 25-100 ppm, to more than 500 ppm, and the chlorine dioxide can be used to clean surfaces anywhere, at home or in the office, in labs or in kitchen/food handling environments, or for use in flumes to rinse fresh produce.
