breathing protection. Suitable extinguishing agents are
water spray, carbon dioxide, foam and dry powder.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Powder: Dampen and sweep up. Dispose of at a licensed
landfill site or incineration unit fitted with waste gas
scrubbers. Solution: Absorb with dry agent (eg. sand or
earth). Dispose of at a licensed landfill site or
incineration unit fitted with waste gas scrubbers.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery for re-use is not economic.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: None known.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Large quantities should not be dumped at landfill sites
since the substance is not readily biodegradable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration at a licensed facility is the preferred means
of disposal. Waste gas treatment to remove nitrogen and
sulphur oxides should be used.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is not readily biodegradable but, it is of
low aquatic toxicity.

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