BACKGROUND

Significant work has been carried out in NATO on the methods for Disposal of Munitions (AVT115, AVT 177); the development of Greener Munitions (AVT179) and studies of munition land contamination (AVT197). One outcome of AVT 179 was to propose a Workshop or Specialist Meeting to discuss the results of AVT179. The purpose of such a Specialist Meeting is to review the direction and need for a future generation of greener munitions together with an assessment of the longer term environmental management tools and improvements becoming available. This will provide NATO members with a state of the art assessment of the position and an updated protocol for munitions environmental management, which will include next generation materials, to minimise the impact of legislation such as REACH.

OBJECTIVES

To further assess the outcome of previous AVT studies and the world-wide state of the art to determine where work is required to provide tools and protocols for the assessment, management and disposal of next generation munitions containing greener, less sensitive materials.

TOPICS

The topics to be covered are: 1. Next Generation Greener materials and their management – reports on activities and results. 2. Manufacturing and Life Cycle Analysis 3. Toxicity and Disposal – REACH, ITAR and similar constraints 4. Compliance with Perform
