CONVERSION OF HIGH EXPLOSIVES

ABSTRACT

The disposal of high explosives was not a problem prior to German reunification. Large quantities (300,000 tons) of old and substandard munitions were acquired when the former German Democratic Republic (GDR) was reunited with the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). This paper evaluates processes available for the conversion of high explosives, and concludes that an affordable and readily available method for the destruction of high explosives from old ordnance is controlled burning.
