    on potential technological alternatives to chemical weapons incineration. Congress also directed the Army to utilize studies by NRC in preparing the report In June , NRC published its first report, entitled Alternative Technologies for the Destruction of Chemical Agents and Munitions. A. Abstract. The provisions of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) connected with possible contact of personnel are summarised. Any handling with chemical weapons (CW), both in bulk and in munitions as well as with toxic armaments waste, in implementing the CWC, including verifying its provisions, is associated with actual health and environmental risks.

    Box I-A—Federal Laws Addressing Chemical Weapons Disposal A number of laws have been passed over the years that specifically address chemical weapons disposal. The Department of Defense Authorization Act of (Pubic Law ) mandated the destruction of the U.S. stockpile of lethal chemical agents and munitions. The Program Executive Office, Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives (PEO ACWA) is responsible for the safe and environmentally sound destruction of chemical weapons stockpiles stored at the Blue Grass Army Depot, Kentucky and the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, , the United States Congress established the ACWA program to test and demonstrate alternative technologies .

      The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant team completed the destruction of nearly , mm projectiles stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, on Sept. 5, marking the end of the main plant’s first munitions campaign. Program Executive Office, Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives (PEO ACWA), headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, is a U.S. Department of Defense-managed Major Defense Acquisition program tasked with the safe and environmentally compliant destruction of the remaining 10 percent of the original U.S. chemical weapons stockpile.
