Army achieves major program milestone Non-Stockpile mission destroys inventory of recovered chemical warfare materiel to date U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency April 19, 2010ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. - Today, the U.S. Army Chemical Materials Agency (CMA) announced that it completed its mission to destroy all non-stockpile materiel declared when the United States entered into the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC), an international treaty mandating the destruction of our Nation’s chemical warfare.
This milestone also marks the destruction of the largest inventory of recovered chemical warfare materiel (RCWM) to date - more than 1,200 munitions - with a stellar safety record.
CMA's U.S. Army Non-Stockpile Chemical Materiel Project (NSCMP) began operations at the Pine Bluff Explosive Destruction System (PBEDS), located at Pine Bluff Arsenal (PBA), Ark., in June 2006 to destroy items, such as 4.2-inch mortars and German Traktor rockets captured during World War II. PBEDS completed destruction operations on April 14.
