Citizens Advisory Commission/Chemical Destruction Community Advisory Board (CAC/CDCAB) Quarterly Meeting: December 16

CAC/CDCAB Quarterly Meeting

The Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant, or BGCAPP, is being built to safely and efficiently destroy a stockpile of chemical weapons currently in storage at the Blue Grass Army Depot. Utilizing neutralization followed by SuperCritical Water Oxidation, the plant will destroy 523 tons of munitions containing blister and nerve agents.

In 2003, the Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass team was awarded the systems contract to facilitate the pilot plant through all of the project stages - design, construction, systemization, pilot testing, operations and closure. Currently, the pilot plant is under construction and work is progressing on a variety of facilities to support chemical agent processing, energetic processing, control and storage, munitions storage, entry control, utility, laboratory analysis, personnel maintenance and other tasks.

The Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternative program, known as ACWA, is the Department of Defense agency responsible for managing the destruction of the Blue Grass chemical weapons stockpile and oversees the Bechtel Parson Blue Grass contract.

Chemical Destruction Community Advisory Board and Kentucky Chemical Demilitarization Citizens' Advisory Commission (CAC/CDCAB):
This quarterly meeting is held at Eastern Kentucky University's Carl D. Perkins Building on Kit Carson Drive in Richmond, Ky., and begins at 1:30p.m.
