the dyeing process Recovery of the remaining, highly water
soluble, dyestuff is not reasonably practicable.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable as the substance has no harmful effects.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Possible

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Ensure sufficient air for complete combustion. Nitrogen
oxides. may be formed and stack-gas scrubbing is

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Less than 5% of the total quantitiy used is discharged into
internal industrial effluent. Waste water in treated in
pre-purification plants before discharge.
