Abstract:

This report documents the results of the field demonstration of a transportable hot gas decontamination HGD system for decontamination of explosives-contaminated range scrap. Under management of the U.S. Army Environmental Center USAEC, a low-cost HGD process configuration was selected by the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program ESTCP for full-scale demonstration of field decontamination of explosives-contaminated range residue at the U.S. Army Aberdeen Test Center ATC, located on Aberdeen Proving Ground APG, Maryland. In addition to funding by ESTCP, additional financing has been provided by the USAEC to perform this field demonstration. This report documents the performance of the decontamination system, provides design and operational details and performance of the materials and equipment, and provides a performance assessment of operational data, including air emissions monitoring and test coupons.
