Chemical Destruction Continues in Colorado: First Projectiles Safely Destroyed
On April 8, crews at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot successfully destroyed three mustard-filled 105 mm projectiles in the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant Explosive Destruction System (PCAPP EDS). Since March 18, PCAPP EDS has been safely destroying mustard agent contained in Department of Transportation bottles. The Army system selected to destroy about 1,300 problematic munitions that cannot be easily processed using the main plant’s automated systems is being managed and operated by teams from Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, complementing the Pueblo workforce to eliminate the final 10 percent of the original U.S. chemical weapons stockpile.
