Summary
In 1985, the Congress required the Department of Defense to carry out the destruction of the U.S. stockpile of chemical agents and munitions and establish an organization within the Army to manage the disposal program. Over time, the Congress also directed the Department of Defense to dispose of chemical warfare materiel not included in the stockpile and to research and develop technological alternatives for disposing of chemical agents and munitions. Under the United Nations-sponsored Chemical Weapons Convention ratified by the U.S. Senate in 1997, the Department of Defense agreed to dispose of its 31,496-ton stockpile of chemical weapons stored throughout the United States and its territories. The convention requires that the chemical stockpile and chemical warfare materiel, such as recovered chemical weapons and training sets, be destroyed by April 29, 2007. The Department of Defense has spent approximately $6.2 billion and estimates that it will spend another $8.7 billion on its disposal efforts under the Chemical Demilitarization Program
