Other: Do not allow to enter drains, sewers or watercourses. If substance has entered a watercourse or sewer, IMMEDIATELY advise police and water authority.

Handling and storage

Handling:
Avoid contact with skin, eyes or clothing. Avoid inhalation of vapours. Avoid generation of dust. Follow the principles of good occupational hygiene to control personal exposures.
Remove or make safe all sources of ignition. The vapour is heavier than air and spreads along ground . Ground/bond containers and receiving equipment. Use only non-sparking tools. Do not use equipment made from brass or other copper alloys. Use explosion-proof electrical/ventilating/lighting equipment. Keep away from: acids and oxidising agents.

Storage:
Keep container tightly closed, dry and in a cool well-ventilated place. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Keep away from copper alloys, acids and oxidising agents.
Storage temperature: Do not expose sealed containers to temperatures exceeding 40 degC.
Storage Life: Stable at ambient temperatures.

Exposure controls / personal protection

1. Technical protection measures
-Technical conditions and measures:
-Containment: enclosure and automation of mixing process as far as possible and contain area around mixing tank to ensure that exposure level is at acceptable level (PROC8b, PROC3).
-Local exhaust ventilation (LEV) in mixing step regarding the exposure to carbon disulphide via inhalation route.
-General ventilation: Regarding exposure via inhalation route and hazard from the substance Good general ventilation (3 – 5 air changes per hour) is sufficient to keep the exposure via inhalation at acceptable level. Monitoring of CS2 emissions from the mixing area and during cleaning and maintenance are recommended when applicable

2.Organisational measures:
-Environmental, health and safety guidelines or written instructions on the standard operating procedure (SOP) are utilized
-Occupational health and safety management system: basic / advanced
-Environment, health and safety (EHS) responsibilities are defined and assigned in writing
-Emergency action plans (Rescue training for accidental emissions) are created
-Personnel are trained in environment, health and safety issues, i.e. in safe handling of chemicals and good housekeeping
-Good hygiene measures practiced
-It is assumed that a comprehensive PPE program is implemented including selection, fit testing, training in use, maintenance and recording, as appropriate
-Exposure should be controlled primarily by avoidance of contact with the substance, for instance by limiting duration of activity, minimization of manual phases and by minimization of staff exposed

3.Conditions and measures related to personal protection, hygiene and health evaluation:
-Inhalation: Regarding use of the substance in the presented conditions of use, respiratory protection is required to keep the exposure via inhalation at acceptable level.
-Eye: Exposure should be controlled primarily by using suitable eye protection (goggles or safety glasses with side shields).
-Skin: Dermal exposure is controlled and personal protection is used during tasks and process where contamination of skin may occur (protective clothing, shoes, gloves).
-PPE should be worn during the identified tasks when there is potential for exposure.
-All personal protection devices shall fulfill relevant standards.






Stability and reactivity

Chemical stability: Stable under normal conditions.Unstable in presence of moisture.
Hazardous Decomposition Product(s): Carbon disulphide.

Disposal considerations

Waste should only be disposed of via a licensed waste contractor. The European Waste Catalogue (EWC) and European Waste List (EWL) is a harmonized list of wastes. Waste materials should be classified prior to final disposal with EWC-codes. Wastes and empty containers should be treated based on their classification and properties referring to local and national waste management regulations. Waste management options: Dispose of to non-hazardous or hazardous waste landfill (Council Directive on the landfill of waste 99/31/EU and Council Decision establishing criteria and procedures for the acceptance of waste at landfills 2003/33/EU) or dispose of via hazardous waste incineration.

Tailings should be treated according to the directive 2006/21/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council on the management of waste from extractive industries and amending Directive 2004/35/EC.

Other waste containing residues of the substance or its hazardous degradation products should be disposed of as hazardous waste to authorized hazardous waste incineration plants, operated according to Directive 2008/98/EC on waste, Directive 2000/76/EC on the incineration of waste and Best Available Techniques for Waste Incineration as described in the respective BREF of August 2006. Based on the waste type and the fulfillment of the acceptance criteria of the Council Directive 1999/31/EC additional waste management methods such as landfill disposal might be used.

The generation of waste should be avoided or minimized wherever possible. Dispose of surplus and non-recyclable products via a licensed waste disposal contractor. Disposal of this product, solutions and any by-products should at all times comply with the requirements of environmental protection and waste legislation and any local waste management regulations.

Waste codes should be assigned by the user, preferably in discussion with the waste disposal authorities. All wastes containing residues of the substance or its hazardous degradation products shall be classified as hazardous waste.

The proposal for the suitable waste codes in accordance with EWC are:
15 01 10* Packaging containing residues of or contaminated by dangerous substances
16 03 05* off-specification batches and unused products; organic wastes containing dangerous substances
15 02 02 * absorbents, filter materials (including oil filters not otherwise specified), wiping cloths, protective clothing contaminated by dangerous substances
01 03 06 tailings other than those mentioned in 01 03 04 and 01 03 05 (tailings with low sulphur content)
01 03 04* acid-generating tailings from processing of sulphide ore (tailings with high sulphur content)


Contaminated packaging: Contaminated packaging should be emptied as far as possible and disposed of as hazardous waste to incineration plants in accordance with Directive 2000/76/EC. Clean packaging material should be subjected to waste management schemes (recovery, recycling, re-use) according to local waste management regulations.

The substance and its container must be disposed of in a safe way. Care should be taken when handling emptied containers that have not been cleaned or rinsed out. Empty containers or liners may retain some product residues. Avoid dispersal of spilt material and runoff and contact with soil, waterways, drains and sewers.
