The Army's skill to satisfy public and congressional calls for to damage expeditiously all the U.S. declared chemical guns will be improved through the choice and acquisition of applicable explosive destruction applied sciences (EDTs) to reinforce the most applied sciences for use to ruin the chemical guns at the moment on the Blue Grass military Depot (BGAD) in Kentucky and the Pueblo Chemical Depot (PCD) in Colorado. the military is thinking about 4 EDTs for the destruction of chemical guns: 3 from deepest region owners, and a fourth, Army-developed explosive destruction method (EDS). This booklet updates previous reviews of those applied sciences, in addition to the other practicable detonation applied sciences, in response to a number of issues together with technique adulthood, procedure efficacy, technique throughput, technique defense, public and regulatory acceptability, and secondary waste concerns, between others. It additionally offers targeted info on all the requisites at BGAD and PCD and charges all the present compatible EDTs plus the Army's EDS with recognize to how good it satisfies those standards.

Round container. cCenter-bolted package in-transit gas shipment. SOURCE: Adapted from NRC, 2008a; BGCAPP Overpack Summary, provided to the committee by ACWA, June 27, 2008. In the agent neutralization system (ANS), the agent is hydrolyzed with a hot caustic solution for VX and GB and with hot water for mustard agent H. The EBH offgas treatment system is similar to the MPT offgas treatment system except that it does not have a bulk oxidizer. SCWO subjects the hydrolysate to high temperatures and pressures (approximately 1200°F and 3,400 psig), converting the organic compounds to carbon dioxide, water, and salts.
