FDA approves Battelle’s system to decontaminate face masks for reuse

As the country faces a shortage of N95 face masks, the FDA has approved the limited use of a process that would clean the masks and allow them to be reused. Columbus-Ohio based Battelle uses a ’vapor phase hydrogen peroxide’ process to decontaminate the masks. Battelle says its system could decontaminate up to 80,000 masks per day.

That pic is of an exhaust valve on a n95 facemask.. They are a little more comfortable ..but.. You breath out strait, unfiltered air.. It won't do much to stop u from spreading , just catching.
