This book assesses a broad range of mobile technologies that have been proposed by agencies throughout the world as alternatives to incineration for the remediation and destruction of chemical warfare agents and associated matA(c)riel. Treatments of both metal parts and explosive or energetic materials are considered. The alternative technologies are grouped into three categories based on process bulk operating temperature: low (0-200AC), medium (200-600AC), and high (600-3500AC). Reactions considered include neutralization, biodegradation, hydrolysis, electrochemical oxidation, supercritical water oxidation, wet air oxidation, plasma reactions, gasification, hydrogenation, pyrolysis, and others. A broad spectrum of processes are described, many of which are as yet only in the laboratory stage while others are in commercial use. Audience: Engineers, technologists and decision makers who require an understanding of the developmental status of alternative demilitarization technologies.
