Chemical Weapons Destruction Technologies
The Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program, the U.S. Army Pueblo Chemical Depot and the surrounding community worked together to select a munitions destruction method: neutralization followed by biotreatment.
The Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant’s (PCAPP) mission is the safe and evironmentally-sound destruction of the chemical weapons stockpile stored at the U.S. Army Chemical Depot. The Surety Program helps ensure that PCAPP employees are reliable, effective and competent to perform the important mission of safely destroying the chemical weapons stockpile.
The City of Pueblo is located in Southern Colorado approximately 115 miles south of Denver. Nestled in the Banana Belt, Pueblo is known for its 300 days of sunshine and its famous Pueblo Green Chile, which is a staple in Pueblo cuisine.
