Team Description
Fluorosurfactants (PFOs) are standard components of firefighting foams but pose an environmental threat. Our goal is to produce an ecofriendly alternative. We propose the use of Ranaspumin-2, a protein present in the bubble nests of Leptodactylus fragilis, to substitute PFOs as a foaming agent in firefighting mixtures. Not only will our project aid the environment, but it can reduce production costs of foams, allowing underfunded fire departments to access these tools.
