  1. Department of DefenseOzone Depleting Substances Reserve

  2. The DoD Ozone Depleting Substances Reserve Only Source for Weapon Systems Support Halons Refrigerants Solvents War Stoppers

  3. Background • Montreal Protocol - 1987 - International Agreement to Phase Out Production of ODS • Halons and Refrigerants Contain Bromine and Chlorine that Deplete Ozone Layer • Manufacture Ceased - 1994/1996 • Strict Controls on Imports and Exports • No Longer Available Locally

  4. Class I ODSs Halons Fire Suppression 1202 1211 1301 Refrigerants Cooling R-11 R-12 R-114 R-500 R-502 Solvents Cleaning 113 1,1,1

  5. Weapon Systems Applications Halon • Armored Vehicle Crew Spaces and Airframe Fire Protection • Fuel Tank Inerting • Flight Line Fire Protection Refrigerants • Ship Refrigeration/Cooling • Electronics Cooling

  6. Building The Reserve • Service Requirements • Internal Recycling • New Acquisitions • Halon • Production Ended 31 Dec 93 • Anticipated Product Throughput - 10M+ lbs. • Refrigerants • Production Ended 31 Dec 95 • Anticipated Product Throughput - 10M+ lbs. • Solvents • Shelf-Life Issue • Strict Asset Acquisition Control • Not Accepting “Used” Product From Customers

  7. Accessing The Reserve • Combat Activities Authorized by Their Service to Requisition ODS - Free Issue • Review by Each Service Monthly Any Activity Can Requisition Empty Cylinders for Recovery and Turn-In - Free Issue

  8. Concept of Operation The Goal Is to Get the Type and Quantity of Halon Where It’s Needed and When It’s Needed. CLEAN DIRTY The Reserve Acts As a Warehouse and a “Repair” Facility. All “Dirty” Halon Is Turned in to the Reserve. Clean Halon Provided to Field Activities for Critical Applications Only. DIRTY GAS CLEAN GAS HALON RESERVE

  9. Dirty Gas Inspection Receiving Leak Check Accounting Testing Leak Check Temporary Storage Reclaiming/ Processing Quality Repackaging Long Term Storage Security Proper Structure Leak Checks - 3 Tier Recycling Process From Facilities Clean Gas Controlled To Users Distribution Critical Use Only

  10. Sites • Primary Storage/Operations Site- Richmond – Issues, Receipts and Turn Ins • Security Sites – Long-Term Storage • Naval Weapons Station Yorktown, VA • Defense Depot San Joaquin, CA • Australia – 2 Sites • Collection/Consolidation • Germany/Netherlands • Pearl Harbor • Japan

  11. Lessons Learned • Priority Mission • System Cylinders • Must be Handled with Strict Adherence to Procedures • Safety Guide for Decommissioning Halon Systems • Leak Monitoring Paramount • Sharing Knowledge with Foreign Militaries and Countries

  12. European Union Regulation Impact • Very Restrictive Controls On Imports And Exports • Exemptions List For Critical Halon Uses - Includes Weapons Systems • CFCs – No Critical Uses List – Cannot Be Imported Or Exported • Current Plan • Process And Hold Halon Within EU • Convert/Dispose Of CFCs Within EU • Netherlands And UK Governments/MOD Assisting

  13. Executing The “Plan” • Many Battles Won, but the “War Is Not Over” • Customers - Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard Pleased with DLA Performance • Supply Required to 2048 • Future Inventory Relies on Turn Ins from Non Critical Applications • Next 4-5 Years Critical for Turn Ins • • Decommissioning Guide • Requisition and Turn-In Procedures
