Abstract:

Production of nitroguanidine at Sunflower Army Ammunition Plant SFAAP, DeSoto, KS, is associated with a number of waste streams with quite different characteristics. Initial studies by the U.S. Army Biomedical Research and Development Laboratory have been directed toward physical chemical treatment of wastewater containing relatively low levels less than 100 mgL of guanidine and nitroguanidine. Ultraviolet photolysis was investigated as an alternative to granular activated carbon adsorption for removal of nitroguanidine.
