Pork Producers have another option for disinfecting against PEDv.

Ferry, B.; Benjamin, M. (2015). | Michigan State University Extension, April 14, 2015.

Typically a disinfectant becomes neutralized in the presence of organic soils. Therefore, complete washing, disinfecting and drying of equipment is essential but very time consuming. In this study, Accelerated Hydrogen Peroxide® (AHP®) successfully inactivated PEDv in the presence of both light and heavy fecal loads (up to 25%) at both tested concentrations at room temperature.
