ABSTRACT

As part of environmentally safe recycling of unwanted ordnance, the commercial blasting industry is a significant potential user of recovered energetic materials. This industry utilizes significant quantities of explosive materials on an annual basis and can easily become an even larger consumer of military energetics if their requirements are properly addressed. Significant quantities of solid rocket motor propellant are about to emerge in the world market as a product requiring recycling. The commercial explosive market is a willing consumer of these materials, albeit at a very low price. The majority of the world's supply of solid propellants contain high value explosives, fuels and oxidizers. A challenge for the technical community is to develop products or processes that can return higher values because of the constituent propellant ingredients.
