Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for reuse is not possible.

Attempts to recover result in conversion to the anti-isomer.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: The salt may be neutralised with base such as aqueous sodium
hydroxide or carbonate. (A632)

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method. The substance should be dissolved in a
flammable liquid and then incinerated. Waste gas treatment
to remove nitrogen and sulfur oxides together with
chlorinated compounds should be used. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain.
