In short, the final process configuration would only be apparent after each component of the modified baseline process had been evaluated separately. Delays in obtaining permits and approvals of the modifications could make a modification impractical compared with the baseline system because the treaty deadline might not be met. S. Army, 2000d): • Pursue explosive separation as a remote manual operation in an ECR. • Perform explosive separation in a separate facility with PMDs/ECRs, assuming state regulatory authorities will agree to an accelerated permit schedule.

The Army should determine whether 13 adequate data are available from JACADS to support the efficacy of processing secondary wastes in the metal parts furnace. If not, the Army should determine the additional tests required to confirm a disposal process. A plan based on these results should also be developed for handling and disposing of all secondary wastes from processing the Pueblo stockpile, including demilitarization protective ensemble suits and hoses, spent carbon filter materials, scrubber brine solutions, plant cleaning wastes, and dunnage.

Finding 3-3. The committee could not determine whether an experimental program to verify the feasibility of processing frozen mustard rounds in the metal parts furnace would delay the disposal schedule for the Pueblo Chemical Agent Disposal Facility. However, the need for experimental verification is not only a technical consideration, but also a regulatory issue. Although the committee did not evaluate the regulatory climate at Pueblo concerning this issue, obtaining a permit for a one-of-a-kind modified baseline process may be more difficult and more time consuming than obtaining a permit for the baseline system, which has been successfully demonstrated at two facilities and supported with extensive trial burn data.
