soot.

Product determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

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

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method. Incinerate at a suitable facility. A
temperature of 1000 deg C is expected to be sufficient to
destroy the substance.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended. However, a computer model (SIMPLETREAT)
predicts 76% removal in water purification plants,
predominately by adsorption to biomass (sludge).

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