A method has not been developed for treating to be operated at higher temperature and possibly for longer squibs and fuzes from the energetics batch hydrolyzer waste times in treating waste contaminated with VX. Available data streams in either the MTU/supplemental decontamination indicate that the half-life for VX is 4 minutes at 482oF and 0.6 unit or the MPT.
