Abstract : The environmentally acceptable disposal of surplus munitions has become a major problem for NATO and others. The NATO Research Technology Organisation carried out a study of the problems and tried to identify both gaps and possible research directions to fill these. It covered not only disposal but also land contamination and included a Workshop in Sofia in September 2007. The conclusions and recommendations will be outlined.
