    The monitoring committee of the National Research Council participated in a tour of plant construction at the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant.

The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) will safely destroy 2,611 tons of mustard agent in mortar rounds and artillery projectiles stored at the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot.

Neutralization followed by biotreatment is the technology selected by the Department of Defense to destroy the Pueblo chemical weapons stockpile.

The Program Manager, Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives (ACWA), headquartered at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland is responsible for managing all aspects of the safe and environmentally sound destruction of the chemical weapons stockpiles in both Colorado and Kentucky.

The Bechtel Pueblo Team, a partnership of Bechtel National, Inc.; Washington Demilitarization Company/URS; Parsons; and Battelle Memorial Institute, is the systems contractor selected to design, build, systemize, pilot test, operate and close PCAPP.
