Under contract to destroy 7.2 percent of the weapons in the U.S. chemical stockpile at the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal Facility (ANCDF) in Alabama, AECOM used state-of-the-art incineration technology to safely destroy approximately 2,254 tons of chemical weapons, including both nerve and blister agents.

Through 2013, the Anniston team has incinerated 100 percent of the facility’s stockpile — 661,579 chemical agent-filled munitions and 2,254 tons of chemical agent. ANCDF was the first chemical agent disposal facility in history to attain OSHA’s Voluntary Protection Program “Star” status for excellent safety performance. Additionally, Anniston is ISO 14001–registered, the result of implementing environmentally sound management policies and processes.
