AbstractSince 1994, the National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the Department of National Defence (DND) have established a research partnership under the Halon Alternatives Performance Evaluation (HAPE) program to respond to the production ban on ozone-depleting halons by the Montreal Protocol. Previous HAPE projects focused on Halon 1301 alternatives for total flooding fire suppression applications. It was recognized that there is a need for information on suitable alternative streaming agents to replace Halon 1211. A new project was initiated to review the information on alternative streaming agents. This involves the review of new technologies that are under development as well as the review of currently available halocarbon streaming agents. This paper provides summary of the project findings on alternative streaming agents for Halon 1211. Compared to systematic and extensive work carried out on total flooding agents worldwide, performance evaluation of streaming agents is lacking.
