Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance is not considered to be suitable for recycling


Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not considered to be applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not considered to be a suitable method of disposal in view

of poor biodgradability and potential to accumulate.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Recommended method for disposal.  Stack gases must be


Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not considered to be an appropriate method of disposal.  The

substance will not stay in solution and is considered to

quickly adsorb onto any organic material present.
