Larry commented on Means for cooling Biohazard suits

Yes, that would work, certainly. For economy, I was considering available lightweight fans and HEPA filter material, adapted and sealed to existing suits. There are numerous lightweight fans adapted for "solar" use that would work with battery, too. I agree with other posters that direct solar drive not practical for the use intended- any ventilation offset by need to be in the sun in West Africa.
