Leaders from the Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant reported the facility built to destroy chemical weapons in Kentucky is more than halfway finished with its testing phase, known as systemization.
Technicians started preparing to support Explosive Destruction Technology operations by training with specialized protective suits and gear Sept. 12 at the off-site training center’s simulated toxic area.
In August, technicians received samples of hydrolysate, the byproduct created during the chemical munitions destruction process, which were prepared under controlled conditions for use in the Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant Lab.
