Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: On using the substance as a dye, 90% is irreversibly bound
to the cotton: recovery of the remaining 10% of highly water
soluble dye is impractible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Only 10% of total usage will be discharge in industrial
effluent.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Possible for solid waste, flue-gas purification should be
used

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Total destruction by aerobic biodegradation is unlikely.
However, there are good indications from analogues that the
substance will be destroyed by anaerobic biodegradation.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will not enter the public domain. Articles
containing the substance may be disposed of as household
waste.
