The report reviews the technology currently in use by the military for disposal of obsolete, unsafe, and excess explosives and propellants and, to the extent possible, characterizes the air, water, and solid wastes generated by these operations. The study outlines the present environmental problems of the industry, the technology in use to control these problems, and the research needed to upgrade the pollution abatement technology. In addition to being directly pertinent to the explosives industry segment of EPA's R&D program, many of the concepts and technologies noted may have wider bearing on pollution abatement in other chemical industry segments.
