  • AFCEC study gives new life to old chemical defense decon kits

    The Air Force Civil Engineer’s Readiness Lab recently determined more than 75,000 expired M295 decontamination kits used in chemical defense ensembles are still effective and can be used, saving the Air Force more than $2.3 million over a four-year period. Each year, the Air Force removes expired kits from field use. In calendar year 2020 alone, 167,000 kits valued at $4.8 million will reach the end of their five-year shelf life. Before the CE Lab study, a large number of expired kits sat unused in stockrooms spread across the globe.
