Abstract:

Source emission testing for total lead and particulates was conducted on the munitions deactivation furnace located in the 400th Munitions Squadron area of Kadena Air Base, Okinawa, Japan. Test results indicate that if most state or EPA standards were to apply, the munitions incinerator would exceed these standards. Total lead is also high, but there are no appropriate standards in which to compare. Recommendations are made as to the munitions furnace operation.
