noyage
Explanation:
"Agents gazeux et système de noyage total
Dans la lutte qu'il mène avec le reste du Canada pour la préservation de l'environnement, l'IRC étudie de nouveaux agents extincteurs écologiques, en remplacement du halon, dont on sait l'effet néfaste sur la couche d'ozone. Plusieurs projets ont ainsi été menés, en collaboration avec la Défense nationale et des partenaires de l'industrie, pour évaluer la performance des hydrocarbures halogénés et des gaz inertes comme systèmes de noyage total dans les espaces habités et non habités."

"Gaseous Agents and Total Flooding Systems
In order to support Canada's effort to preserve the environment, IRC/FR has investigated alternatives to ozone-depleting halons for fire suppression applications. The Fire Research Program has conducted numerous projects in collaboration with National Defence and industrial partners to evaluate the performance of halocarbon agents and inert gas agents for total-flooding applications in normally occupied and unoccupied spaces."
