Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Uncontaminated material can be recovered by
recrystallisation from hot ethanol, filtration to 10 micron
and drying.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Neutralisation is not recommended as the chemicals required
would increase the hazard.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance should be disposed of by incineration; minimum
residence time 2 seconds at a temperature of 1000-1200 deg
C. Waste gas treatment to remove hydrogen chloride and
sulphur oxides should be fitted.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended

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