Abstract:

The purpose of this study was to examine the long-term additive ambient impact of certain toxic air pollutants that will potentially be emitted from Chemical Agent Incinerator AI proposed for the Edgewood Area EA of Aberdeen Proving Ground APG, Maryland and from three additional planned or existing incinerators also located on the EA. this impact was determined in consideration of the existence and operation of three additional planned or existing incinerators also located on EA. Based on air dispersion modeling conducted as part of an original analysis, emissions of chlorinated organics from the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute for Chemical Research, Development and Engineering Center DecontaminationDetoxification Municipal Waste Incinerator MWI, for downwind distances as great as the distance to the nearest boundary of the EA. Consequently, for this evaluation, only the MWI is considered to emit chlorinated organics. Keywords Toxic air pollutants, Mustard, Blister agent, Chemical agent, Chemical agent incineration.
