mustard agent were destroyed in the Static Detonation Chamber at the Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant Sept. 4.

This marks the third of five chemical weapons destruction campaigns completed at the Blue Grass Army Depot (BGAD).

“There is no doubt destroying the mustard projectiles in a Static Detonation Chamber was the right choice of technology to use,” said Dr. Candace Coyle, BGCAPP site project manager. “We knew the 1940s-era mustard agent would prove difficult to destroy due to its age and impurities.”

“The safety performance of our team was outstanding throughout the entire campaign,” said Ron Hink, Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass (BPBG) project manager. “Our team faced numerous challenges with the destruction of the mustard projectiles, but we were able to overcome those challenges and safely and successfully complete their destruction.”

A 2011 X-ray assessment of the chemical weapons stockpile in Kentucky confirmed the solidification of agent in a significant number of mustard projectiles, rendering them unsuitable for automated processing in the main plant, as originally planned.

These problematic munitions required a different technological approach for their destruction.

里士满仓库所有芥末剂炮弹现已销毁

WTVQ

史蒂夫·罗杰斯于2021年9月7日发布

肯塔基州蓝草陆军基地(WTVQ)——最后一个155毫米炮弹,包括芥末剂在战争中被毁静态爆轰室蓝草化学剂销毁试验厂9月4日。

这标志着五次化学武器销毁行动中的第三次在联合国完成蓝草陆军基地(BGAD)。

BGCAPP现场项目经理坎迪斯·科伊尔博士说:“毫无疑问,在静态爆炸室中销毁芥末弹是正确的技术选择。”。“我们知道,20世纪40年代的芥末剂由于年代久远和杂质,很难销毁。”

Ron Hink说:“我们团队在整个活动中的安全表现都非常出色,碧草(BPBG)项目经理。“我们的团队在销毁芥末弹方面面临着诸多挑战,但我们能够克服这些挑战,安全、成功地完成销毁。”

2011年对肯塔基州化学武器库存进行的X射线评估证实,大量芥末弹中的药剂固化,使其不适合按照原计划在主工厂进行自动化处理。

这些有问题的弹药需要采用不同的技术方法来销毁。
