3.8.6. Submarine Safety Technologies – Life Support

CO2 absorption cartridges such as HiCap® using soda lime (e.g. Sofnolime®) are used in submarines for high capacity carbon dioxide capture and containment in confined spaces. Such technology if combined with mine refuge chambers can increase the duration and quality of air for trapped miners. Submarine pressure doors have been used underground in pressure rated refuge chamber airlocks. There may be some future application for such installations in specific conditions.
