Army Annual Report Highlights

  • All the program's technical objectives were met or exceeded.
  • DRE of >99.99999 percent proved the ability of the PTDR (referred to as PEPS in the report) to safely and completely destroy large quantities of typical problem DoD wastes and drastically reduce waste volumes.
  • EPA requirements for air emissions and slag were greatly improved upon as verified by independent analyses.
  • The PTDR operated with an equipment downtime of less than 30 percent and established the viability of the commercial-scale operation of the system.
  • The cost and operations data collected during the demonstration operations confirmed the cost effectiveness of a commercial scale PTDR, making it a preferred alternative to current disposal methods for "hard to treat" wastes.
