Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: In normal application approximately 98% is consumed by

irreversible binding to paper pulp.

Recovery for recycling of the remaining highly water soluble

substance is not practical.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

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

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration at a suitable facility is possible. Waste gas

treatment to remove sulfur and nitrogen oxides should be

fitted (A661).

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Approximately 2% of the total quantity used is discharged

into internal industrial effluents as a highly diluted


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