Analysis of Engineering Design Studies for Demilitarization of Assembled Chemical Weapons at Pueblo Chemical Depot (The Compass series)

This system supervisor for Assembled Chemical guns evaluate (PMACWA) of the dept of safety (DOD) asked the nationwide learn Council (NRC) to evaluate the engineering layout reports (EDSs) constructed by way of Parsons/Honeywell and normal Atomics for a chemical demilitarization facility to totally put off the assembled chemical guns on the Pueblo Chemical Depot in Pueblo, Colorado.

Until 1996, no aerobic enrichment cultures capable of utilizing chlorinated dibenzofurans and dibenzodioxins had been obtained. This changed when it was shown that Sphingomonas strain R W l converted 1-chloro-DD (1-CDD) and 2CDD to 3-chlorocatechol and 4-chlorocatechol, respectively, and catechol (Fig. 20) (140). Now both aerobic and anaerobic mechanisms of l o x i n biodegradation are known (70). The &oxygenation of monochlorinated DDs occurs on both the halogen-substituted aromatic nucleus and the nonsubstituted nucleus (54, 57).

Other chlorophenols are used in the synthesis of pesticides, resins, dyes, and pharmaceuticals. Aerobically, PCP is converted by a bacterial monooxygenase to tetrachlorohydroquinone through the oxidative elimination of the chlorine para to the phenolic hydroxyl. Anaerobically, PCP is reductively dechlorinated stepwise to phenol. Phenol can be metabolized further anaerobi- cally to methane and COz. , in soil subject to bioremediation by a white rot fungus, methylation products including pentachloroanisole were produced (130).

4,5-Dichlorocatechol is a strong inhibitor of chlorocatechol 1,2-dioxygenase. These compounds are therefore critical recalcitrant intermediates in the aerobic mineralization of hchloro- and possibly also trichloroand higher congeners. 1,2,3,6,7,8-HexaCDDc1 Peri-dechlorination pathway 1,2,3,4,6,7$-HeptaCDD CI clq)$Jcl CI c1 Cl + 1-monoCDD ci 1,2,3,4,7,8-HexaCDD I ,2,3,4,6,7,8,9-0ctaCDD 1,2,3,4,6,7-HexaCDD51 5 + w N dl CI C' ...
