together with hydrogen chloride gas and soot.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear a self-contained breathing apparatus.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Damp down spilt material with water, sweep up and transfer

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is not economically or technically

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal of waste material at a controlled landfill site is
possible. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be incinerated at an approved facility
with waste gas treatment to remove nitrogen oxides and
hydrogen chloride gas. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not be discharged to sewage systems or
the aqueous environment. However, accidental discharges are
not expected to have any untoward effects as it has been
shown that the substance does not inhibit the respiration of
activated sewage sludge.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from dyed fibre is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous properties of

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - others: Polyester fibres dyed with the substance and preparations of
the substance may be disposed of as for domestic waste.
