Abstract:

LTSS44 studied 10 contaminant areas of interest to NATOs efforts to stop environmental pollution at the source. The study areas included 1 Petroleum, Oils and Lubricants 2 Munitions 3 Fire Suppressants and 4 Refrigerants Ozone Depleting Substances - ODS 5 Solvents and Cleaners Volatile Organic Compounds - VOC 6 Organic and 7 Inorganic Surface Coatings 8 Liquid Shipboard Wastes 9 Solid Shipboard Wastes and 10 Pesticides. Each problem area was described in detail. The current situation, on-going research and recommended directions to accelerate the phase out or elimination of each contaminant area by substitution, process change and management improvement was described in detail. Finally, LTSS44 recommended a way forward for the Defence Research Group to embrace further study of the means to eliminate and prevent contamination while minimizing the impact of compliance with environmental regulations, laws and international agreements on the NATO military mission.
