Static Detonation Chamber 2000: How it Works

The Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant is using the Static Detonation Chamber (SDC) 2000, the largest chamber of its kind, to destroy M55 rockets and rocket components containing GB nerve agent. The SDC 2000 is destroying rockets that have leaked in the past and placed in overpacked containers. Additionally, the chamber is destroying undrained rocket warheads, as well as rockets not suitable to be processed in the plant. Finally, the SDC 2000 is designed to destroy agent-contaminated secondary waste. During closure operations, the chamber will destroy containerized rocket warheads containing residual amounts of chemical agent.
