Abstract
Many pyrotechnics contain valuable resources which could be used in commercial applications, for example metals (e.g. magnesium, aluminum); metallic salts of copper, strontium, and barium; oxidizer (e.g. sodium nitrate, potassium Perchlorate); binders such as viton, and dyes which have reclaimed value. The Navy is seeking technology which can recover the valuable ingredients from pyrotechnic flares and smoke munitions in an environmentally acceptable manner. The technical approach proposed utilizes a three-step process, two of which utilize Aphios, expertise in supercritical fluids.
