Contents Notes
Fact Sheets on the disposability characteristics of 104 commonly used military packaging materials, including 41 plastics, are presented in this voluminous report together with the methodology used in their development. The report is divided into two parts, the first part being a brief introduction to the Fact Sheets and the Fact Sheets themselves, and the second part containing a com-plete description of the analysis methodology. The methodology is described in detail to show how packaging materials were se-lected for analysis, how the materials were categorized; the ge-neral disposability characteristics of each category, the appli-cable waste management methods, and the detailed sequence that was followed during the analysis to finally determine the disposa-bility of each material by each applicable waste disposal process. The methodology therefore reveals an approach that can be used in the future as new packaging materials are introduced and require analysis. (Author, modified-PL).
