First-aid measures

Emergency measure - Inhalation: If symptomatic, move to fresh air. Treat symptomatically.
Get medical attention if symptoms occur.
Emergency measure - Eyes: Any material that contacts the eye should be washed out
immediately with water. Get medical attention if symptoms
occur.
Emergency measure - Skin: Wash off with soap and water. Get medical attention if
symptoms occur.
Emergency measure - Ingestion: Get medical attention. Never give anything by mouth to an
unconscious person.

Fire-fighting measures

Recommended extinguishing agent: Water spray, carbon dioxide (CO2), dry chemical, or foam.

Product arising from burning: Carbon oxides and hydrogen bromide.

Product determined by test: N

Protective equipment: Wear self-contained breathing apparatus and protective
clothing.

Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Absorb spill with vermiculite or other inert material, then
place in a container for chemical waste. Clean surface
thoroughly to remove residual contamination.

Handling and storage

Handling: Avoid prolonged or repeated breathing of mist or vapour.
Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Ensure adequate
ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling.

Storage: Keep container tightly closed. Keep away from incompatible
substances (i.e., strong oxidizing agents, acids, and
bases).

Packaging of the substance and or preparation: The substance will be imported as a liquid in

200-kilogram pre-weighed drums.

Stability and reactivity

Danger other than fire: None.

Chemical reaction with water: Experience in use and structure activity relationships
indicate that the test substance is not hazardous in contact
with water or humid air.

Dust explosion: Not applicable.

Dust explosion determined by test: N

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: It is not practical to recover or recycle the substance.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: It is not practical to neutralize the substance.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Not recommended.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: A temperature of 1000 degrees C is expected

to be sufficient to destroy the substance.


Hazardous Combustion Products: Carbon oxides


Hazardous Decomposition Products: Hydrogen bromide

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The predicted environmental concentrations (PECs) for each
compartment at the continental, regional, and local spatial
scales were calculated using EUSES computer model and the
methods described in the EU Technical Guidance Document
(TGD). Only residual waste resulting from washing emptied
drums was considered for calculating PEC values.


Information specific to local STP and receiving water


Specific Information Parameter



Number of emission days/year: 12

Local emission to wastewater

during episode: 1 kg/day

Characterization Not readily

of biodegradability: biodegradable

Effluent discharge rate of STP: 4.32 x 10^8 L/day

Flow rate of river (low flow): 8.64 x 10^8 L/day


The fate of a substance in a communal sewage treatment plant
is modeled using a non-equilibrium, steady-state box model,
known as SIMPLETREAT. In EUSES a revised version of this
model is employed, SIMPLETREAT 3.0. The fate of the
substance as modeled by SIMPLETREAT is presented in the
table below:







Fate of substance in local STP


Compartment Fraction of Emission




Fraction of emission directed to air 0.0

Fraction of emission directed to sludge 0.917

Fraction of emission degraded 0.0
