The software supervisor for Assembled Chemical guns evaluation (PMACWA) of the dept of security (DOD) asked the nationwide study Council (NRC) to evaluate the engineering layout reports (EDSs) constructed by means of Parsons/Honeywell and common 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 overview and evaluate of other applied sciences for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical guns: section II (ACW II Committee). This document provides the result of the committee's clinical and technical evaluation, to be able to support the workplace of the Secretary of safety in making a choice on the know-how package deal for destroying the chemical munitions at Pueblo.

The committee evaluated the engineering layout applications proposed by way of the know-how services and the linked experimental reports that have been played to validate unproven unit operations. an important a part of the trying out application concerned increasing the expertise base for the hydrolysis of vigorous fabrics linked to assembled guns. This method was once a priority expressed via the Committee on evaluation and assessment of other 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. now and again, exams for a number of the assisting unit operations weren't accomplished in time for the committee to include effects into its evaluate. In these circumstances, 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 was once in a position to behavior a complete evaluation of the try out info that have been accomplished for the general process layout. This document summarizes the study.

Example text

Both valves on the recirculation line, one near the bottom of the tank and one at the pump suction, were then closed off, effectively stopping the recirculation. The steam trace line heating was continued. , the recirculation loop piping was overpressurized, thereby causing the pipe to split and the flanges to separate. Partially digested propellant spilled onto the floor, but the propellant did not ignite. The system was cooled; contents of the tank were left in place, pending a decision on how to remove them safely.

BAt the 3X decontamination level, solids are decontaminated to the point that agent concentration in the headspace above the encapsulated solid does not exceed the health-based, eight-hour, time-weighted average limit for worker exposure. 0 µg per cubic meter in air. Materials classified as 3X may be handled by qualified plant workers using appropriate procedures but are not releasable to the environment or for general public reuse. In specific cases in which approval has been granted, a 3X material may be shipped to an approved hazardous waste treatment facility for disposal in a landfill or for further treatment.

General Finding 2. The technology base for the hydrolysis of energetic materials is not as mature as it is for chemical agents. Chemical methods of destroying energetics have only been considered recently. Therefore, there has been relatively little experience with the alkaline decomposition of ACWA-specific energetic materials (compared to experience with chemical agents).
