US Chem Demil Marches On -- Armchair Generalist
The US Army Chemical Materials Agency announced hitting the 60 percent destruction mark in its efforts to eliminate the US chemical weapons stockpile. It won't make the 2012 deadline, but it is making steady progress using a safe and efficient technology - incineration.
"We have increased our efficiency at destroying the nation's chemical weapons stockpile while maintaining the highest safety and environmental compliance standards," said Conrad Whyne, CMA Director. "This accomplishment is the result of a true team effort between our storage and destruction staff consisting of both government and contractor personnel, and I commend the dedication of the members of our highly skilled work force," he added.
My Comment: I had completely forgot about this program. Hat tip to Armchair Generalist for following it and reporting on its progress.
