Edison, N.J. (April 15, 2020) -- FEMA logistics specialists and New Jersey National Guardsmen help unload Battelle decontamination units at the New Jersey Exposition Center, which has been set up as a Field Medical Station in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Battelle’s technology has the capacity to decontaminate tens of thousands of N-95 respirators, the type of face masks that are most effective in protecting healthcare workers from the COVID-19 virus.
