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 Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical Weapons: Phase II

The U.S. military is within the strategy of destroying the nation's stockpile of getting older chemical guns kept at 8 destinations within the continental usa and on Johnston Atoll within the Pacific. initially, incineration was once selected for the destruction of those shops, yet this system has met with public competition, and Congress directed the military to strengthen substitute applied sciences for destroying the stockpiles in Pueblo, CO and Richmond, KY. to help the military during this technique, the NRC was once requested to guage the engineering layout research of the 3 Blue Grass applicants. This publication offers an research of varied concerns concerning the proposed engineering layout package deal for the Blue Grass facility.

Barrier systems for environmental contaminant containment and treatment

Containment and permeable reactive obstacles have come complete circle as an appropriate environmental regulate expertise in the past 30 years. As curiosity shifted again towards containment within the Nineteen Nineties, the chanced on itself depending mostly on pre-1980s know-how. thankfully, long ago 10 years very important advances have happened in different parts of containment, so much particularly within the quarter of permeable limitations.

Regulating Toxic Substances: A Philosophy of Science and the Law

The proliferation of chemicals in trade poses medical and philosophical difficulties. The medical problem is to strengthen information, methodologies, and strategies for choosing and assessing poisonous components sooner than they reason damage to people and the surroundings. The philosophical challenge is how a lot clinical info we must always call for for this activity in step with different social pursuits we would have.

Biological effects of surfactants

Figuring out the function of aquatic biota and the influence of pollutants and chemicals that input aquatic ecosystems is important to the review, prevention, and remediation of broken environments. organic results of Surfactants synthesizes crucial findings from thousands of articles and the author's present experiments at the organic results of artificial surfactants and detergents on person organisms, populations, groups, and ecosystems.

Solid Wastes Management

Sturdy Wastes administration starts off with a spotlight on processing municipal and related advertisement, in addition to commercial wastes; assessing and minimising the environmental affects of processing and disposal. the second one part stories the remedy applied sciences on hand (physical, organic and thermal), their merits, negative aspects and environmental functionality.

GENERAL FINDINGS General findings on the EDS phase of the ACWA program for the hydrolysis of energetic materials and the three technology packages evaluated in this report appear below. The general findings must be considered in light of the fact that a few of the ACWA EDS tests were not completed in time for the committee to obtain final test results and still meet publication deadlines, and that some process steps remain to be demonstrated on a pilot scale. Also, following its statement of task, the committee limited its evaluations to separate assessments of the total solutions proposed by AEA, Eco Logic, and General Atomics for destroying the assembled chemical weapons at Blue Grass Army Depot.

The fate of lead during energetics hydrolysis in the presence of picrate is not understood. Until more information becomes available on the speciation of lead and the solubility of lead picrate under the conditions of hydrolysis, the possibility of solid lead picrate formation cannot be dismissed. As a precautionary measure, lead-based propellants should be processed separately from tetryl and tetrytol, eliminating the possibility of lead picrate formation. General Finding (Blue Grass) 4. Based on the results of EDS testing and the engineering design package, the committee believes that the AEA SILVER II™ total solution technology package could eventually destroy the assembled chemical weapons stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot.

Each EDS required the development of an EDP and experimental tests to acquire necessary data that had not been obtained during the demonstration test phase. ” PMACWA was requested to proceed under the same guidelines as contained in Public Law 104-208 and to continue use of the Dialogue process and Citizens’ Advisory Technical Team and their consultants. The PMACWA then initiated a second demonstration program, referred to as Demo II, to demonstrate the three technologies that had not been selected for Demo I.
