First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: In case of inhalation, remove patient to fresh air. If not
breathing give artificial respiration. If breathing is
difficult give oxygen.
Emergency measure - Eyes: In case of eye contact, rinse immediately with plenty of
water and seek medical advice.
Emergency measure - Skin: In case of contact with skin, wash with copious amounts of
water.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Seek medical advice.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide or foam may
be used.

Product arising from burning: The substance is combustible and will burn if involved in a
fire, evolving noxious fumes (eg carbon and sulfur oxides).
However, there is no experimental evidence to support the
anticipated combustion products.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Full protective clothing and self-contained breathing
apparatus must be worn.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Evacuate personnel from immediate vicinity.


Wear appropriate personal protective equipment conforming to
the relevant national or international standards as
mentioned in section 2.3.10.


Absorb spillages of solutions with a suitable inert material
(eg sand or soil). Carefully transfer the spillage to waste
containers, or use a sealed industrial vacuum machine.
Containers filled with waste material must be labelled in
the same way as the original containers.


Clean the spillage area with water and detergent.


Dispose of waste material by incineration in accordance with
local regulations.

Handling and storage

Handling: To transfer the substance from its drum to the reactor, a
open proper system is used without possibility of spillages.
This process takes less than 60 minutes for each 140 kg
batch.


Engineering controls are necessary to reduce exposure to the
substance.


When exposure cannot be prevented or adequately controlled
appropriate personal protective equipment should be worn.
Such protective equipmemt should conform to the appropriate
European and Italian standards.


The standards mentioned above should be regarded as a
minimum.

Storage: Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area, protected from
heat sources.


Keep containers tightly closed when not in use.

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: 210 litre polyethylene drums of a thickness greater than 3.5
mm with screw caps.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Discharge to the environment will be minimal. Recovery from
minor spillages or accidental discharge is not economically
or technically feasible, and such waste material will be
disposed of by incineration. In principle, it may be
possible to recover larger spillages of uncontaminated
material for subsequent use.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: No chemical treatment is practicable to neutralise the
hazardous health or environmental properties.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Contaminated containers or spillages of solutions mixed with
inert material (eg sand or soil) should not be disposed of
by landfill.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance can be disposed of by incineration by burning
under controlled conditions at a licensed waste treatment
processor in accordance with local regulations. Stack gases
should be scrubbed, because noxious fumes (eg carbon and
sulfur oxides) could be formed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance should not normally be discharged directly to
the sewage system or the aqueous environment. However,
adverse effects on sewage treatment systems would be
unlikely.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: None.

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

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.
