Message From the Project Manager
Bechtel Parsons Blue Grass (BPBG) is the systems contractor selected by the Department of Defense’s Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program to design, build, systemize, test, operate and close the Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (BGCAPP) to destroy the chemical weapons stockpile at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Kentucky.
In 2023, the BPBG workforce successfully destroyed the last chemical weapon stored at the Depot in Richmond. The final chemical weapon, an M55 rocket containing GB nerve agent, was destroyed July 7, 85 days ahead of the nation’s Sept. 30, 2023 Chemical Weapons Convention treaty commitment.
This is an historic milestone not only for our project, but also for Richmond, the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the United States and the world. This is truly an accomplishment with global impact.
Over the years, thousands of workers poured their talents into the construction, testing and operation of the BGCAPP facility. We are grateful for their hard work and focus in safely completing the destruction of the last remaining declared stockpile of chemical weapons in the U.S.
Our core values of safety, quality, and environmental stewardship have made BPBG and its teaming partners-Amentum, Battelle Memorial Institute and GP Strategies- good corporate citizens in the critical undertaking to safely complete our mission.
