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

It is expected that weapons processing at Blue Grass will require no SCWO liner changes for the SCWO reactors treating energetics hydrolysates and dunnage slurried in energetics hydrolysates. , 12 liner changes total for the GB campaign) over the 16-month operating life of the plant. During periods of steady operation with GB hydrolysate, based on six liner changes EXECUTIVE SUMMARY per reactor, each liner will be replaced after 110 hours of operation. It appears likely that liner change-out procedures in the full-scale system will encounter more problems than were encountered in the smaller test reactors used to date.

When leakers are detected, they are overpacked and subsequently stored and handled separately. STATEMENT OF TASK The complete statement of task for the ACW II Committee is given below. S. chemical weapons storage sites. The alternative technologies to undergo demonstration testing are: the AEA Technologies electrochemical oxidation technology, the Teledyne Commodore solvated electron technology, and the Foster Wheeler and Eco Logic transpiring wall supercritical water oxidation and gas phase chemical reduction technology.

A summary of the conditions used in the commissioning runs is given in Table 2-2. The feed used for these tests was Composition B, a material that is readily available at HAAP and very similar in composition to Composition B-4 (see Table 2-1). The working volume in the reactor for all the commissioning runs was about 1,700 gallons, and the reaction temperature was maintained at 87°C for the duration of the hydrolysis. The feed was added continuously through an Acrison loss-in-weight feeder. The test matrix for the energetics hydrolysis tests in runs 6 through 21 is given in Table 2-3 (Bonnett and Elmasri, 2001).
