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.

所有芥末弹在里士满仓库被摧毁

WTVQ

由史蒂夫·罗杰斯于2021年9月7日发布

肯塔基州蓝草军火库(WTVQ) -最后的155毫米炮弹包含芥末代理被毁于静态爆震室蓝草化学剂销毁试验工厂9月4。

这标志着在联合国完成的五次化学武器销毁行动中的第三次蓝草军火库(BGAD)。

BGCAPP基地项目经理坎迪斯·科伊尔(Candace Coyle)博士说:“毫无疑问,在静态引爆室中摧毁芥子气弹是正确的技术选择。”“我们知道,20世纪40年代的芥菜剂由于年代久远,且含有杂质,很难销毁。”

“在整个竞选活动中,我们队的安全表现非常出色,”罗恩·欣克说,柏克德,帕森斯,蓝草(BPBG)项目经理。“在销毁芥末弹的过程中,我们的团队面临了许多挑战,但我们能够克服这些挑战,安全、成功地完成了销毁工作。”

2011年,对肯塔基州化学武器库存的x光评估证实,大量的芥子气弹中含有凝固剂,不适合在主工厂按照原计划进行自动化处理。

销毁这些有问题的弹药需要不同的技术方法。
