Hazardous waste minimization is one of the most pressing environmental issues facing the U.S. Army depots today. The U.S. Army Toxic and Hazardous Materials Agency USATHARA conducts research and development to support Army depots in developing programs and technologies to reduce the generation of hazardous waste. Degreasing and chemical paint removal processes at Army depots generate significant quantities of hazardous waste. Fluidized-bed paint stripping FBPS, which has the potential to reduce the quantity of waste generated during paint removal, was selected by USATHAMA for a field demonstration. The FBPS was believed to have the potential to be substituted for the chemical paint stripping and degreasing of some parts. This report presents the results of a field evaluation of this technology conducted at the Red River Army Depot RRAD. The following were the objectives of the demonstration tests Paint stripping, Fluidized bed, Hazardous waste minimization.
- Solvents, Cleaners and Abrasives
- Solid Wastes and Pollution and Control
- Water Pollution and Control
