Emergency measure - Skin: Wash well with soap and water
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Symptomatic treatment

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: No special risks; any usual extinguishing agent can be

to be evolved.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Sweep up (or if in solution, absorb on inert material) and

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Not practical from used dyebath liquor; but the
contaminated dyestuff could be purified by
recrystallisation

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effects

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Possible in a properly regulated landfill disposal site
insulated so as to prevent leaching, providing all local
and other regulations are obeyed.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Possible for dry substance; dilute liquor can be first
sprayed into domestic refuse and then burnt. Acidic fumes
may be formed and the plant should be equipped to deal with
these.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Not biodegradable by short- residence aerobic treatment but
such dyestuffs are usually largely removed by being
absorbed onto the sludge or by precipitation (40%).

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery from dyed paper is not feasible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable, no known hazardous effects.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Dyed paper can be disposed of with normal domestic waste.
