Official: Turn up the heat to reduce exposure when destroying chemical weapons

John Barton, chief scientist for Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass, says turning up the heat will eventually rid Madison County of World War II-era nerve gas and mustard munitions stockpiled at Blue Grass Army Depot. He says hydrogen cyanide will form as a gas during a step in the plant's neutralization process that will render the rocket warheads and propellents harmless
