about

The Conversion of Liquid Rocket Fuels is the first volume to be dedicated to the demilitarization of Azerbaijan. It is the product of an exciting workshop which brought together participants from NATO member countries and partner countries to share ideas and experience. This publication investigates the possible treatment methods for hazardous ballistic missile wastes being stored in Azerbaijan. The uniqueness of this volume lies in its interdisciplinary nature with authors coming from a diverse range of fields and experiences. Topics include risk assessment of hazards, environmental and human toxicology, technological options for chemical disposal, and comparative case studies from similar projects in Moldova and Georgia. Also featured is an introduction to the field of demilitarisation and military conversion, and a cultural analysis of the emerging Republic of Azerbaijan. Those in military or civilian administrative positions who face the task of chemical waste disposal or demilitarization will find The Conversion of Liquid Rocket Fuels especially interesting. This volume brings new experiences and information to the field of environmental studies and war and armed conflict.
