Munitions constituents may pose environmental, occupational, safety, and health risks and mitigating these risks throughout the life cycle of these materials is critical to mission success. This session will highlight recent advances in characterization, fate, effects, sampling and analytical techniques, and treatment options for wastes from munitions manufacturing.
