Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of the substance from spillages, discharge to
effluent or dyed fabrics is not economically possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Is acceptable providing the concentration in effluent does
not exceed 10 mg/litre.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be rendered harmless by burning under
controlled conditions (Flue gases should be scrubbed,
providing complete combustion occurs.)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is unlikely to appreciably degrade in aerobic
processes of short duration but will be removed by sorption
onto sewage sludge. Bioelimination averaged 63% over the
first 14 days. The substance is unlikely to have any adverse
effect on aerobic processes at sewage works, but there is
significant inhibition of gas production if the substance is
present at a concentration of 1% w/w total volatile sludge
solids. Anaerobic digestion completely removes colour from
aqueous phase. This could be due to absorption onto sludge
or more likely to biodegradation.

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