.

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
scrubbed.
