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 software supervisor for Assembled Chemical guns review (PMACWA) of the dep. of security (DOD) asked the nationwide study Council (NRC) to evaluate the engineering layout reports (EDSs) constructed by means of Parsons/Honeywell and basic Atomics for a chemical demilitarization facility to totally cast off the assembled chemical guns on the Pueblo Chemical Depot in Pueblo, Colorado. to complete the duty, the NRC shaped the Committee on evaluation and overview of other applied sciences for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical guns: section II (ACW II Committee). This file provides the result of the committee's clinical and technical evaluation, on the way to support the place of work of the Secretary of protection in deciding on the expertise package deal for destroying the chemical munitions at Pueblo.

The committee evaluated the engineering layout applications proposed by way of the know-how prone and the linked experimental experiences that have been played to validate unproven unit operations. an important a part of the trying out application concerned increasing the know-how base for the hydrolysis of lively fabrics linked to assembled guns. This strategy used to be a priority expressed through the Committee on overview 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 learn came about because the experimental stories have been in development. every now and then, checks for the various aiding unit operations weren't accomplished in time for the committee to include effects into its overview. In these situations, the committee pointed out and mentioned strength areas of difficulty in those operations. according to its services and its competitive data-gathering actions, the committee used to be capable of behavior a entire overview of the try out information that have been accomplished for the final approach layout. This document summarizes the study.

Handbook of Advanced Radioactive Waste Conditioning Technologies (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)

Radioactive wastes are generated from quite a lot of assets, together with the facility undefined, and scientific and medical study associations, offering quite a number demanding situations in facing a various set of radionuclides of various concentrations. Conditioning applied sciences are crucial for the encapsulation and immobilization of those radioactive wastes, forming the preliminary engineered barrier required for his or her transportation, garage and disposal.

Control and Instrumentation For Wastewater Treatment Plants

This e-book describes the state of the art advances in computer-based plant keep an eye on. the fabric offered is meant to supply an introductory textbook on top of things and instrumentation know-how for Wastewater remedy (WWT) vegetation. The publication is aimed toward WWT plant operators, procedure layout and keep an eye on engineers, works managers and people who are concerned with the layout, deploy, commissioning and operation of WWT crops.

Industrial Wastewater Treatment by Activated Sludge

Commercial pollutants remains to be a tremendous obstacle and regardless of its value, sound and systematic pollutants keep watch over efforts are very poorly documented. the nature and treatability of business wastewaters is extremely variable and particular for every commercial task. organic remedy with activated sludge is the ideal know-how for commercial wastewaters from a number of significant business sectors.

Example text

The new committee was asked to produce three reports: (1) an evaluation of the new demonstration tests (Demonstration II); (2) an evaluation of the two EDPs and tests for Pueblo; and (3) an evaluation of EDS packages and testing for Blue Grass. Technologies successful during Demonstration II tests will be candidates for use at Blue Grass. Thus, the third study could include evaluations of as many as four technologies. This report presents the committee’s evaluation of the two EDPs and associated testing developed for Pueblo.

The Picatinny Test Plan Requirements describes objectives, planned testing, and team member responsibilities for the EDS test program (Bonnett, 2000). The main objectives of the test plan and some of the organizations involved are summarized below: • Picatinny Arsenal and Holston Army Ammunition Plant (HAAP) are responsible for determining and defining optimum operating parameters for the hydrolysis of all energetic materials contained in munitions at the Pueblo Chemical Depot and the Blue Grass Army Depot.

Energetic materials representative of the materials in the Pueblo stockpile had not yet been tested in the full-scale reactor at HAAP. As of January 1, 2001, only two Composition B hydrolysis runs had been completed. In one run, 200 lb of Composition B were hydrolyzed, and in the other, 500 lb were hydrolyzed. A detailed analysis of the hydrolysate composition as a function of time during these runs had not been completed by February 1, 2001; however, useful information was generated about the systemization (preoperational testing) of a full-scale hydrolysis reactor.
