‘Have scientists finally found the ‘magical solution’ to stop zombie fires?

Getting the word out there in May 2021 UK Fire magazine 

As the world continues to remove the use of AFFF (Aqueous Film Forming Foam) from front-line firefighting, Hydro Navitas Solutions continue to drive home the benefits of using Cold Fire. Fire and Rescue Services are looking for something that can replace AFFF and it seems that F3 (Fluorine-Free Foam) are not the simple answer.

The Environment Agency has never looked kindly with manufacturers that replace one highly toxic chemical with another, not so highly toxic chemical, but still highly toxic. Cold Fire is and always will be FREE of PFAS (Perfluoroalkyl and Polyfluoroalkyl), including PFOA (Perfluorooctanoic Acid) and PFOS (Perfluorooctane Sulfonate) found in AFFF and also FREE of the other chemicals found in F3 alternatives.

Continuing studies have found Cold Fire to offer so many benefits over using just water, Professor Guillermo Rein, HAZELab, ICL (Imperial College London). Rein went on to say, “This “magical” suppressant could make it easier to put zombie fires to rest for good. Fighting peat fires demands an incredible amount of work, time and water, and biodegradable Cold Fire wetting agent could help everybody: fire brigades, communities and the planet.”

We are all very excited about Cold Fire and we hope you will be too.
