AECBC

A method for in situ generation of a decontamination solution adapted to decontaminate mustard agents by oxidation and nerve agents by perhydrolysis, comprising the steps of generating a stable precursor solution of aqueous NH4HCO3 by bubbling CO2 and NH3 into a container of water; and adding a peroxide component to the precursor solution. The step of bubbling CO2 into a container of water may be accomplished by bubbling fossil fuel engine exhaust including CO2 directly into the container of water.
