Abstract:

As a result of past munitions handling operations, the U.S. Army has numerous lagoons which contain varying amounts of explosives contaminated sludge. Rotary kiln incineration has been identified and demonstrated as a treatment technology for explosives contaminated sludge. Prior to the performance of this task order, no safety approved feed system existed for explosives contaminated sludge. However, a safety-approved feed system will be required before incineration can be used in the field to decontaminate these sludges. This report describes the full scale field demonstration of the safety approved feed system completed in July 1986. However, the incinerator feed system development was initiated in September 1982 under WESTONs Task Order No. 2 which involved the field demonstration of a pilot scale incineration system for explosives contaminated soils.
