Attachment D Acknowledgment of Reviewers This Consensus Study Report was reviewed in draft form by individuals chosen for their diverse perspectives and technical expertise. The purpose of this independent review is to provide candid and critical comments that will assist the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine in making each published report as sound as possible and to ensure that it meets the institutional standards for quality, objectivity, evidence, and responsiveness to the study charge. The review comments and draft manuscript remain confidential to protect the integrity of the deliberative process. We thank the following individuals for their review of this report: Glen T. Daigger, NAE,1 One Water Solutions, LLC, Richard C. Flagan, NAE, California Institute of Technology, Stephan C. Graham, Army Public Health Center (retired), Igor Novosselov, University of Washington, and Robert B. Puyear, Independent Consultant.

The supercritical water oxidation system at the Blue Grass Chemical Agent Destruction Pilot Plant near Richmond, Kentucky is a secondary waste processing reactor that is an important unit in the overall function of the Blue Grass Chemical Agent Pilot Program. This system is designed to reactively destroy the primary products of agent hydrolysis, thus preventing chemical reformation of the original agents. This letter report develops metrics that can be used to determine the success or risks of failure of the system, focusing on safety, corrosion, performance, and reliability, availability, and maintainability.
