"Green" Bombs Planned

A new class of ecologically correct explosives have been developed in Germany. Without the toxic byproducts that common explosives produce and safer to handle they also fits use for Navy and Tank guns use. They are based in nitrogen instead of carbon as TNT and others do.

It is a D&R of University of Munich in Germany with funds provided by the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, the Fonds der Chemischen Industrie, the European Research Office of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory, the U.S. Army's Armament Research, Development and Engineering Center, and the Bundeswehr Research Institute for Materials, Explosives, Fuels and Lubricants.
