Abstract:

As the Worlds environmental consciousness continues to increase, more efforts are being devoted to finding safe, compliant solutions to past, current, and future environmental problems. Driving forces such as the Clean Air Act Amendment of 1990 and the Federal Facilities Compliance Act, have led the Department of Defense DoD to expand its efforts to reduce the amounts of hazardous materials generated from its cleaning, pretreating, plating, and painting and paint removal processes used in maintenance depots and operations major DoD sources. The Navy has set a goal of near zero discharge of hazardous waste by the year 2000. In support of this goal, the Naval Air Warfare Center Aircraft Division at Warminster has a number of on-going efforts that deal with the elimination or reduction of hazardous materials used in aerospace processes. The Environmental Materials Program includes a variety of research, development, test and evaluation projects covering a wide range of technologies volatile organic compounds reduction, chlorofluorocarbon elimination and toxic heavy metal replacement. These programs are aimed at solving environmental problems encountered by the fleet. A summary of previous environmental efforts performed at the Center are provided in the Phase I report. The following is an update to these programs along with a brief description of present efforts.
