By National Research Council, Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences, Board on Army Science and Technology, Committee on Review of Chemical Agent Secondary Waste Disposal and Regulatory Requirements

This document advises the U.S. Army's Chemical fabrics organization on standards and top practices for handling the transforming into quantity of secondary waste that's being generated as development is made within the destruction of the U.S. chemical guns stockpile. The record provides a evaluation of present secondary waste disposal laws and practices, together with trial burn and healthiness threat evaluation specifications, and in addition makes comparisons of military practices and standards, with these practices and standards present in undefined.

Economic Incentives for Stormwater Control

Facing stormwater runoff in city parts is an issue that's getting larger and dearer. As we disguise porous surfaces with impervious structures—commercial constructions, parking plenty, roads, and houses—finding locations for rainwater and snowmelt to soak in turns into tougher. Many landscapers, architects, planners, and others have proposed that using "green" localized administration practices, equivalent to rain gardens and bio-swales, might functionality in addition to conventional "gray" pipes and basins at decreasing the results of stormwater runoff, and achieve this in a manner that's extra appealing within the landscape—and probably additionally less costly.

Biological Soil Crusts: An Organizing Principle in Drylands

This quantity summarizes our present knowing of organic soil crusts (biocrusts), that are omnipresent in dryland areas. due to the fact they conceal the soil floor, they impression, or perhaps keep an eye on, all floor trade approaches. Being one of many oldest terrestrial groups, biocrusts include a excessive variety of cyanobacteria, algae, lichens and bryophytes including uncounted micro organism, and fungi.

Table 1‑2 gives a more detailed summary of both major and minor waste streams at chemical agent disposal facilities. The classification of these wastes and the acceptable treatment and disposal options, however, depend on state and federal regulations. A separate category of waste, closure waste, results from the decontamination and destruction of the facility at the completion of disposal operations. These wastes, which are also classified as either hazardous or non­ hazardous, are addressed in Chapter 4.

Upon approval, feed rates may be increased to 75 percent of the ATB feed rate. This preliminary approval typically takes approximately 30 days. The facility must await regulatory approval of the final ATB report before moving to 100 percent of the ATB feed rate. This is a lengthy process, and in some instances, the disposal facilities have completed destroying a given chemical agent without ever obtaining final approval for 100 percent feed rate operations. There are three primary reasons for the lengthy regulatory approval process.

After an ATB, the Alabama Department of Environmental Management allows ANCDF to operTracy Smith, Compliance Engineer, Washington Group International, “ANCDF secondary waste incineration tests,” Presentation to the committee on October 16, 2006. ate at 50 percent of the ATB feed rate for 30-45 days. ANCDF then operates at 75 percent of the ATB feed rate until the trial burn report is reviewed and approved, which takes about 6 months. No special testing is done to support HRAs. Instead, HRAs are conducted with emissions data gathered at the maximum feed rates during the ATBs.
