The decomposition of ammunition and subsequent ecological disposal of obtained material was associated primarily with monitoring of decomposition process safety. That was improved by designing and manufacturing of the company s own technological facilities and whole range of other technological aids emphasizing the safety during decomposition of ammunition and pyrotechnical items. Since the year 2004, ZEVETA AMMUNITION joint-stock company has been participating in a vast decomposition programme aimed at safe and ecological disposal of surplus and unmarketable military stock as ground and aircraft ammunition, mines, engineer and pyrotechnical material and other commodities. Realisation of this impressive project, which has been the first one in the history of Czech Army as to scale, enables to save on costs incurred by storage and guarding of ammunition at military facilities, reduction of its possible misuse, creation of numerous job opportunities at decomposition and disposal plants and the last but not the least to mention it the utilisation of obtained materials in industry and construction.
