Alternative Technologies for the Destruction of Chemical Agents and Munitions TOPIC COMMENTS g. Process stability/temperature excursions/explosion possibility h. Extent to which process can be expected to achieve acceptable level of destruction -- will additional or further treatment by other methods be required 4. By-products and Waste Streams a. Types/composition/quantities (gaseous, liquid, solid) b. Normal/Upset conditions c. Pollution control systems requirements Types/dynamics required/availability/performance 5. Availability of Analytical Techniques for Monitoring a. Process monitoring b. Environmental monitoring of processing area 6. Current Development Status Concept/laboratory/pilot plant/demonstration/commercial 7. Extrapolation to an ability for destruction of chemical agents a. Technical basis b. Probable limits (3X, 5X)* c. Development required to demonstrate this extrapolation 8. Areas of proposed applicability (check appropriate areas) Feed Stream 3X 5X -- Bulk liquid -- Metal parts decontamination -- Energetics -- Dunnage -- Wastes from other ''front end'' processes -- Hazardous chemicals other than the chemical agents (e.g. PCBs)

Alternative Technologies for the Destruction of Chemical Agents and Munitions TOPIC COMMENTS 9. Further tasks and time required to develop/ demonstrate prior to pilot plant level (The additional time to production level will be estimated). 10. Costs to the extent known, with emphasis on special costs such as reagents, materials of construction and waste disposal. * 3X: Decontamination to the extent that material can be transported as toxic waste but still must be under government control. 5X: Complete decontamination and can be released from government control.
