Federal Target CWD Programme

Conceptual basis of Chemical Weapons Destruction (CWD) Programme in new wording are:
  • Reduction of quantity of full scale facilities.
  • Reduction in stages of technological facilities.
  • Transportation of munitions and/or reactive bulks (products of warfare gas detoxication) to operating facilities for CWD or reactive bulks processing. In the process considered the accumulated experience of transportation of especially dangerous materials (the first class of danger), for instance, 200 thousand tons of chlorine per year in tanks was taken into consideration. The chlorine is 400 times more toxic than reactive bulks (the third class of danger).
  • Usage of shift team method during operation of CWD facilities.
  • Application of current high effective and/or particular specific technologies for destruction of warfare chemical agents on reactive aggregates of ejector type and by means of catalytical hydrolysis directly in munitions.
  • Use of available capcities or developed infrastructure for destruction of CW stockpiles.
  • Inviting in extrabudgetary funds:
    1. Foreign grant-in-aid:
      • facility in Shchuchye - USA, Canada, Italy, UK, Switzerland, Netherlands;
      • facility in Gornyi - Germany, Netherlands, Finland, European Union;
      • facility in Kambarka - Sweden, Germany, Switzerland, Finland, European Union;
    2. Declaration of tenders on reprocessing of reactive masses in output for commercial purposes
