Abstract : As a result of the cease and desist orders a program of installation restoration was established and placed under the direction of the project manager for chemical demilitarization and IR. The program objectives at RMA are to stop contaminants migrating off the arsenal and to acquire technology to develop and implement containment and treatment systems. RMA, in conjunction with WES and Meradcom developed a plan of study to determine the most economical and feasible interim containment system(B) for installation at RMA. In late 1975, many studies were initiated on processes that would be applicable to removal of organic contaminants. This report discusses only one process, carbon adsorption.
