January 2012 observed the of entirety of the U.S. Army's Chemical fabrics Agency's (CMA's) activity to spoil ninety percentage of the nation's stockpile of chemical guns. CMA accomplished destruction of the chemical brokers and linked guns deployed out of the country, that have been transported to Johnston Atoll, southwest of Hawaii, and demilitarized there. the remainder 10 percentage of the nation's chemical guns stockpile is saved at continental U.S. depots, in Lexington, Kentucky, and Pueblo, Colorado. Their destruction has been assigned to a separate U.S. military association, the Assembled Chemical guns possible choices (ACWA) Element.

ACWA is presently developing the final chemical guns disposal amenities, the Pueblo and Blue Grass Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot vegetation (denoted PCAPP and BGCAPP), with guns destruction actions scheduled to begin in 2015 and 2020, respectively. ACWA is charged with destroying the mustard agent stockpile at Pueblo and the nerve and mustard agent stockpile at Blue Grass with no utilizing the a number of incinerators and furnaces used on the 5 CMA demilitarization crops that handled assembled chemical guns - munitions containing either chemical brokers and explosive/propulsive elements. the 2 ACWA demilitarization amenities are congressionally mandated to hire noncombustion-based chemical neutralization tactics to wreck chemical agents.

In order to securely function its disposal crops, CMA constructed equipment and methods to observe chemical agent infection of either secondary waste material and plant structural parts. ACWA at present plans to undertake those tools and methods to be used at those amenities. The Assessment of Agent tracking thoughts for the Blue Grass and Pueblo Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot Plants file additionally develops and describes a half-dozen situations concerning potential ACWA secondary waste characterization, approach apparatus upkeep and changeover actions, and closure agent decontamination demanding situations, the place direct, real-time agent infection measurements on surfaces or in porous bulk fabrics may possibly enable extra effective and probably more secure operations if appropriate analytical expertise is out there and affordable.
