The Department of Defense’s testing and training ranges are a critical asset for the military; however, they present unique challenges for characterization, control, and treatment technologies. In FY2019, SERDP began funding two groups of projects to address (1) mitigation of the transport of munitions constituents from testing and training range sites and (2) treatment of wastes from munitions constituent manufacturing.
The first group of projects was funded to improve the DoD’s ability to mitigate transport of legacy and new munitions constituents from testing and training ranges to off site surface and ground waters. Selected projects include the following:
The second cohort of projects was funded to develop cost effective options for treatment of wastes generated from munitions constituents manufacturing and load/assemble/pack (LAP) operations. Selected projects include the following:
Summaries of these research projects are available on the SERDP and ESTCP website and all reports originating from these efforts will be available from the project webpages.
