"This was an international mission, and we worked with the UK and many other countries in order to make this happen," said Tim Blades, a director at the Edgewood Chemical Biological Center who was commander of the chemical operations team. Blades noted the UK helped with some specific chemicals in the Syrian stockpile.

"...we've enjoyed a very close relationship with the UK in this whole endeavor, and it's very much an honor to be considered as a top innovator by them," Blades said.

The destruction plan calls for the ton containers to be transferred out of their storage igloos and taken 50 yards across a road to a Chemical Agent Transfer System, said Tim Blades, a director with the U.S. Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center who will supervise the sarin destruction. The contents of the containers will then be drained and transferred to a reactor for neutralization.

About 1.2 gallons of sarin will be processed at a time. Each batch will take an hour and 15 minutes to neutralize, with most of that time devoted to moving the ton container, Blades said.
