Overseas Hazardous Waste Disposal, Management, and Contingency Operations

Overseas Hazardous Waste Disposal and Readiness Workshop

July 13-14, 2000, Fort Belvoir, VA

Held July 13 and 14, 2000, this day and a half workshop for DoD personnel provided an overview of the realities of DoD hazardous waste disposal overseas and readiness implications. After background updates on how the system works overseas, guest speakers discussed a variety of real situations encountered by DoD elements overseas, including successes and lessons learned. The role of the Basel Convention was examined in detail, with speakers representing the EPA, the Department of State and other organizations, to help understand how this international treaty affects DoD operations. Individuals with first-hand experience addressed the hazardous waste disposal in contingencies through all phases of deployment planning and operations. Breakout sessions gave participants an opportunity to join deliberations on meeting DoD’s future challenges in HW disposal overseas.
