- An Environmental Assessment determined the installation and operation of three Static Detonation Chambers (SDC) at the Pueblo Chemical Depot will have no significant environmental impacts. The SDCs will augment PCAPP by destroying a limited portion of the depot’s inventory of chemical munitions that present a problem to destroy in the main plant.
- PCAPP staff initiated Integrated Facility Demonstrations Nov. 13. The demonstrations show regulators the plant is operating as designed, which is the final step before the plant can receive its Part B operating permit.
- The first day of Integrated Facility Demonstrations resulted in the best throughput in a 24-hour period since pilot testing began in September 2016, with 780 munitions processed in the Agent Processing Building. As of Nov. 23, a total of 82,776 155mm projectiles have been processed.
- Baseline Reconfiguration operations continue. As of Nov. 23, 16,971 4.2-inch mortar rounds have been reconfigured.

New to PCAPP?
The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) is a state-of-the-art facility built to destroy the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot, Colorado. The main plant uses neutralization followed by biotreatment to destroy the mustard agent stockpile, and the Explosive Destruction System uses cutting charges to destroy problematic rounds not suited for the plant’s automated equipment. The safety of the workforce and neighboring communities is the project’s most important priority.
