Firing Range Remediation


This discussion includes some key characteristics affecting potential firing range remediation as well as recommended best practices.

• Firing Range Remediation Design Parameters for Effective Lead Management
• Managing Lead Environmental Impact at Operating Ranges 
• Site Specific Considerations for Operating and Closed Facilities 

Blastox® 215 is used for lead management on shooting range remediation projects.

Smaller particle sizes provide more reactive surface which is beneficial when stabilizing lead for contaminated firing range remediation projects. Furthermore, the low dose rate and competitive pricing, Blastox® 215 is becoming an effective resource for many facilities.

If the contaminated area exceeds the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) limits, stakeholders should be aware that firing range remediation applications such as Blastox exists that can be added directly to the site to render it non-hazardous. This significantly drives down the cost of disposal and hazardous waste disposal is avoided, allowing for, non-hazardous waste disposal.


In addition to managing shooting range remediation projects, it’s being used successfully on thousands of tons of contaminated soil. Its chemistry has a proven long-term stability benefit. You can apply it at low dose rates and have peace of mind knowing that the waste will remain stable, always.
