By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Army Science and Technology, Committee on Review and Evaluation of Alternative Technologies for the Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical Weapons: Phase II

The application supervisor for Assembled Chemical guns evaluate (PMACWA) of the dept of safeguard (DOD) asked the nationwide learn Council (NRC) to evaluate the engineering layout stories (EDSs) constructed via Parsons/Honeywell and normal Atomics for a chemical demilitarization facility to fully cast off the assembled chemical guns on the Pueblo Chemical Depot in Pueblo, Colorado. to complete the duty, the NRC shaped the Committee on evaluate and evaluate of different applied sciences for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical guns: part II (ACW II Committee). This file offers the result of the committee's clinical and technical evaluation, so one can help the place of work of the Secretary of safeguard in opting for the know-how package deal for destroying the chemical munitions at Pueblo.

The committee evaluated the engineering layout programs proposed through the know-how companies and the linked experimental experiences that have been played to validate unproven unit operations. an important a part of the checking out software concerned increasing the know-how base for the hydrolysis of full of life fabrics linked to assembled guns. This strategy used to be a priority expressed via the Committee on evaluation and review of different applied sciences for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical guns (ACW I Committee) in its unique file in 1999 (NRC, 1999). the current research came about because the experimental reviews have been in development. every so often, exams for a number of the aiding unit operations weren't accomplished in time for the committee to include effects into its evaluate. In these instances, the committee pointed out and mentioned strength troublesome areas in those operations. in accordance with its services and its competitive data-gathering actions, the committee used to be capable of behavior a entire evaluate of the try out information that have been accomplished for the general process layout. This document summarizes the study.

The CATT provides the Dialogue with more indepth technical participation and interaction with the PMACWA staff, technology providers, and the ACW II Committee. CATT members often attend open sessions of the ACW II Committee, and the committee chair (or designates) regularly provides briefings on the progress of the committee’s activities at meetings of the Dialogue. 13 INTRODUCTION TABLE 1-2 Munitions Containing HD and HT in the Pueblo Chemical Depot Stockpile Munition Type Model No. 12 kg tetrytol Fuze: M51A5 Propellant: M67 Semifixed, complete projectile: includes fuze, burster.

This is followed by an assessment of the status of the test program at the time this report was prepared, an evaluation of the results until that time, and a reassessment of the ACW I Committee’s original findings. been banned in Europe. DOD has begun to work toward minimizing OB/OD as a means of disposal (JOCG, 2000). When an item is identified as surplus, it is transported to a site at which it will either be destroyed immediately or stored until it can be destroyed. Most of the sites that receive munitions for destruction are Army depots such as Hawthorne Army Depot (Nevada), Sierra Army Depot (Nevada), and Hill Air Force Base (Utah) (Mitchell, 1998).

Similar munitions at Johnston Atoll and at the Deseret Chemical Depot in Tooele, Utah, were found to contain a solid “heel,” which did not flow from the shell. Contracts were awarded in March 2000, and preliminary EDPs were drafted by the technology providers in June 2000. Each EDP includes drawings and documentation, a preliminary hazards analysis, and projected life-cycle costs and schedules for the technology package to be implemented at a particular site. The final EDPs were released in December 2000.
