In 1985, Congress mandated the destruction of the stockpile of M55 rockets saved at numerous chemical guns garage websites within the usa and its possessions due to the probability that the rockets might self-ignite. hazard tests played via the military point out the chance to the general public is ruled through M55 rockets containing the nerve agent sarin (GB). through the disposal of those GB M55 rockets at a domain in Tooele, Utah, it was once stumbled on that the agent had gelled in an important percent of the rockets. In those circumstances, the normal destruction approach wouldn't paintings. the military devised another mechanism for incinerating the gelled rockets, however the nation of Utah constrained their disposal fee utilizing this procedure. the military, notwithstanding, has considering constructed plans for expanding the destruction fee of gelled rockets and proposes that this system be used at Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (ANCDF) in Anniston, Alabama. to aid during this attempt, the military requested the nationwide learn Council (NRC) to judge the Army's plan for greater destruction charges. Former Congressman Robert Riley (now Alabama's governor) additionally asked an NRC evaluate. This learn was once performed by means of the NRC advert hoc Committee on evaluate of military making plans for the Disposal of M55 Rockets on the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility.

Sample text

Since some of the agent was intended for use in aluminum M55 rockets, where acidity would cause corrosion, some preventive measures were explored. • RD (redistilled RO). RO lots of GB were redistilled over the next 6 years to improve purity and were redesignated as RD. In addition, TBA stabilizer was replaced by DICDI to reduce the acidity and allow the agent cavity of M55 rockets (constructed with aluminum casings) to be loaded with GB. • RS. Agent lots of GB that were restabilized with DICDI were identified by adding RS to the basic agent subtype.

As noted in Chapter 1, as of July 2002, approximately one-fourth of this original tonnage had been destroyed during demilitarization operations at the Johnston Atoll Chemical Agent Disposal System (JACADS) and the Tooele Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (TOCDF). As noted in Table 1-1, the Anniston stockpile has mustard agent in mortars, projectiles, and ton containers. The nerve agent GB is contained in cartridges, projectiles, and rockets. VX nerve agent is contained in projectiles, rockets, and mines (NRC, 1994a).

RD (redistilled RO). RO lots of GB were redistilled over the next 6 years to improve purity and were redesignated as RD. In addition, TBA stabilizer was replaced by DICDI to reduce the acidity and allow the agent cavity of M55 rockets (constructed with aluminum casings) to be loaded with GB. • RS. Agent lots of GB that were restabilized with DICDI were identified by adding RS to the basic agent subtype. 273. 13. 009. 053. All other lots have lower percentages of leakers (SAIC, 2002a). M55 rockets were loaded with GB from various agent lots during the 1960s.
