Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of the substance from minor spillages, discharges
to effluent or from dyed fabrics is not economically
possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: This is not a method of destruction but provided dilution to
a concentration of 100 mg/litre or less occurs no harmful
effect on aquatic life is likely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be rendered harmless by burning under
carefully controlled conditions.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is unlikely to be appreciably degraded in
aerobic biological processes. The substance is unlikely to
have any adverse effect on either aerobic or anaerobic
processes at sewage works. It is likely that the substance
will pass largely unchanged through a water purification
station.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: The substance may be disposed of by burying it in an
approved tip (ie one which is regulated by the appropiate
authorities and designed to contain any leachate).

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from articles is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Articles dyed with the substance may be disposed of as
domestic waste.
