Syrian chemical arms ‘to be destroyed on US Navy ship’

“The body charged with overseeing the destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons has confirmed some will be ‘neutralised’ aboard a US Navy ship. The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) said the US was contributing technology and financing. The chemicals will be diluted to safer levels using a process called ‘hydrolysis’. The OPCW said 35 firms had submitted expressions of interest in destroying Syria’s remaining chemical stockpiles. Their suitability is being evaluated.”
