- Assembly of three Static Detonation Chamber (SDC) units at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Plant (PCAPP) was completed in late July. The SDC units due to start operating this year will augment the main plant by destroying problematic chemical munitions not suitable for its automated process.
- Asphalt and pavement were installed at the SDC. The paving allows for emergency services access. Approximately 150,000 square feet of asphalt were placed.
- For the second consecutive month, PCAPP reported its best month ever for processing munitions, destroying 15,440 155mm projectiles in July. During the final week of July, the Pueblo plant averaged nearly 660 rounds per day. The previous record of 14,126 was set in June.
- As of Aug. 28, 293,509 155mm projectiles have been processed in the main plant.

New to PCAPP?
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. The safety of the workforce and neighboring communities is the project’s most important priority.
