Please plan to join us for our first Electrical League of Arkansas monthly meeting of the year.  Rick Geraci from Brown Engineers will be our guest speaker.

This presentation will cover the oversight of the electrical testing, commissioning, and general operation of the Pueblo Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (PCAPP) in Pueblo, Colorado completed in September 2016. The $4B facility processes 105mm and 155mm artillery shells containing mustard gas as well as some 4.2” mortars with agent. The destruction means is thru bio-treatment rather than incineration as was done at the Pine Bluff Arsenal. The program also includes a brief discussion of the use of mustard gas as a chemical weapon.
