Abstract:

The disposal of the demilitarization stockpile-unwanted munitions, rocket propellants, manufacturing wastes-is necessary at Department of Defense DoD and Department of Energy DOE installations. The disposal methodologies include 1 recovery and reclamation technology, 2 thermal destruction methods such as incineration and popping finances, 3 research stage technology such as electrochemical reduction and biodegradation, and 4 open burning OB or open detonation OD. OBOD takes place in an earthen pit, trench, or bermed area and is the most common disposal method in use today this stems from its low cost, effectiveness, and the capacity to treat a wide range of munitions.
