Department of Defense Open Burn Pit Report to Congress
United States. Department of Defense
From the Introduction: "Pursuant to Section 355 of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, Public Law 115-232, this report provides details of any ongoing use of open burns pits; and the feasibility of phasing out the use of open burn pits by using technology incinerators. [...] Generally, the use of open burning is limited to short term contingency operations outside of the United States where no feasible alternative exists.. For longer term enduring locations, DoD uses conventional solid waste management practices. [...] This report provides current policies and guidance, use of open burn pits, factors that influence their continued use, feasibility of phasing out and the challenges that are continuing to be investigated."
