Abstract The report contains a validated database of pollutant emission factors applicable to the disposal of energetic-containing materials through open-air burning in burn pans and unconfined detonation processes (OB/OD). The emission factors in the database were compiled using data from studies, which measured the quantities of particles, semivolatile organic compounds, polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and furans, toxic metals, volatile organic compounds, and inorganic gases released when 0.22 kg of energetic materials were detonated and 2.2 kg of these materials were burned in 930 cu/m chambers called BangBoxes. The actions taken in validating and databases are also described. Summary statistics were calculated and compared to the results from smaller (0.02 kg) and larger (250-3,200 kg) scale detonations and burns of energetic materials.
