Emergency measures in case of spillage: Powder: Sweep up and dispose of at a controlled landfill
or by incineration. Solution: Absorb using suitable

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Unused material cannot be recovered

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable (French c.a. summary)

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a controlled landfill site is possible. The
substance is only sparingly soluble in water.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is possible. However, the facility must be
able to deal with hydrogen cyanide gas and nitrogen oxides.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is sparingly soluble in water. It is not
readily biodegradable and will most probably be absorbed
onto sludge. After use only 5% of the substance remains.
The concentration in waste water from dyeing operations is
200 ppm and this will be diluted ten fold before discharge.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: After application to textiles the substance cannot be
recovered.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable to substance when part of an article.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Articles containing the substance may be disposed of in the
same manner as household refuse.
