Physical Sciences Inc. PSI has conducted two green, low-cost, multi-cycled, closed-loop, environmental friendly, chemical demilitarization processes for pyrotechnic-smoke munitions. The developed demilitarization successfully recovered all components from the pyrotechnic-smokecompositions for commercial resale, as well as all solvents for recycling. The demilitarization process eliminated the environmental footprint of hazardous materials while simultaneously maximizing the reduction in operational costs. The two demilitarization processes segregated and recovered greater than 65 of all pyrotechnic-smoke materials from the bulk formulations. Simultaneously, all solvents were recovered and used in subsequent cycles of the green, closed-loop, environmentally friendly demilitarization process.
