The National Research Council of the National Academies established a study committee to assess the disposal of stocks of legacy nerve agent GA and lewisite at Deseret Chemical Depot. Specifically, the Committee on Disposal of Legacy Nerve Agent GA and Lewisite Stocks at Deseret Chemical Depot reviewed information provided to it on the 50 percent design of the Area Ten Liquid Incinerator (ATLIC) facility.
The committee focused on differences between the process design being used for the ATLIC facility and those used at the Tooele Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (TOCDF), which has operated successfully for over a decade in campaigns to destroy nerve agents GB and VX and mustard agent. This letter report provides the technical information necessary to support the general and specific findings and recommendations of the committee.
This analysis examines the process design and procedural steps to be used for treating GA and lewisite at the Deseret Chemical Depot; provides an assessment of the process design which includes a new incinerator and associated pollution abatement system to be tailored to the requirements for treating the GA and lewisite; and provides an assessment of the process design to determine the system's ability to reduce arsenic and mercury emissions to within the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT) new source regulatory limits.
