The first of its kind, this book is all set to become the leading source of information on environmentally–friendly pyrotechnics for many years to come.

Written by a leading expert working at the Pyrotechnics Technology Division of the US Army, the book covers the formulation of explosives, their chemistry and applications geared at the development of safer and greener pyrotechnics. It addresses European and US governmental directives and policies that regulate the manufacturing, usage and environmental impact, such that both military and civilian researchers and developers can incorporate the concepts of green pyrotechnics in their daily work. The text equally caters to the needs of commercial suppliers of fireworks and stage pyrotechnicians.
