Abstract:

The ability to make powders from battlefield scrap and general waste materials in-situ on the battlefield forward operating base FOB is investigated. Three different techniques have been employed to grind mm-size small scrap pieces of water bottles, which are made of polyethylene terephthalate PET. The particle size distribution of the milled powder obtained in each technique was measured. The results are presented in this report.
