Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for recycling is not economically possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: pH can be neutralised by addition of alkalis.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at an approved landfill site is not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This is the recommended method of destruction using high
efficiency industrial incinerators.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: It is unlikely that the substance will be appreciably
degraded in aerobic processes of short duration.

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