The main approach adopted by the U.S. Army for destruction of all
declared chemical weapon materiel (CWM) is incineration. There has
been considerable public opposition to this approach, however, and
the Army is developing a mix of fixed site and mobile treatment
technologies to dispose of non-stockpile CWM. To assist in this
effort, the Army requested NRC to review and evaluate these
technologies, and to assess its plans for obtaining regulatory
approval for and to involve the public in decisions about the
application of those technologies. This book presents an assessment
of non-stockpile treatment options and the application of these
systems to the non-stockpile inventory, of regulatory and
permitting issues, and of the role of the public.
