Nitroglycerin mitigation at Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head, Maryland

  • Designed, fabricated and operated an air treatment unit that was capable of treating 400 CFM of air containing nitroglycerin (NG). The waste was generated by a Naval Surface Warfare Center Production Facility in Maryland.
  • Reduced emissions of NG in air by greater than 95% and brought it within the regulatory allowable limit.
  • Ensured safety by selecting material of construction and developed operating procedures for the treatment system that passed the strict hazard evaluation criteria set by the U.S. Navy.
