Disposal considerations

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

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No method of neutralising the hazardous effects is known.

The only possibility currently available is neutralisation

of the organic acid part but it cannot be stated that

neutralisation with base would produce a less hazardous

substance.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance must be disposed of by incineration at a

controlled facility. A temperature in excess of 1200 deg C

is recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not recommended. There is a possibility of separation from

aqueous media because of the poor solubility but for large

quantities this would be impossible.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance and preparations containing it will not enter

the public domain.
