The Army's skill to satisfy public and congressional calls for to damage expeditiously the entire U.S. declared chemical guns will be more desirable through the choice and acquisition of acceptable explosive destruction applied sciences (EDTs) to enhance the most applied sciences for use to spoil the chemical guns presently 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 area owners, and a fourth, Army-developed explosive destruction process (EDS). This e-book updates previous reviews of those applied sciences, in addition to the other workable detonation applied sciences, in line with numerous issues together with procedure adulthood, technique efficacy, technique throughput, strategy security, public and regulatory acceptability, and secondary waste matters, between others. It additionally offers specific info on all the necessities at BGAD and PCD and premiums all of the current compatible EDTs plus the Army's EDS with admire to how good it satisfies those requisites.

The information on these technologies is being updated in this report to allow the technologies to be considered for implementation at the two Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives (ACWA) program facilities, the Blue Grass Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot Plant (BGCAPP) and the Pueblo Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP).

And has been used in Japan to destroy Japanese chemical bombs, some containing a mustard agent/lewisite mixture and others containing vomiting agents. A system was recently started up in Belgium to destroy recovered chemical munitions from the World War I era. The technology has not been used in the United States. It uses a detonation chamber in which chemical munitions and their contents are destroyed when donor charges wrapped around the munitions are detonated under a near vacuum. The use of vacuum reduces noise, vibration, and blast pressure, thus increasing the vessel life.
