accordance with local waste regulations, f. e. by

Collect residues wet and fill it also into labelled waste
containers. Avoid skin contact and inhalation of the dust.
Provide the precaution measures described in 2.3.

Discharge of the waste containers according to local and
administrative regulations, e. g. by incineration in
appropiate plants.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery or reuse is practically not possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: If used as intended there is no danger.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Dumping on waste disposal sites insulated to prevent seepage
of liquids into the ground is possible if in accordance with
existing environmental legislation and applicable local

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: Incineration is the preferred and the recommended way of
destruction. The usual exhaust gases are formed by burning
compounds containing oxygen and nitrogen.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: Product is remaining in the layer of the photographic
material. Therefore, product only may come into waste water
during the cleaning process of the internal mixing and
coating units. In waste water treatment plants product is
eliminated by filtration or sedimentation onto the sludge.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The new substance as well as preparations containing the new
substance are only used at Agfa-Gevaert AG, Leverkusen, and
Agfa-Gevaert N.V., Belgium (manufacturing of photographic
films and papers). Used by the general public only in the
form of photographic materials. Therefore, recovery or reuse
is not possible.

Public at large - Possibility of neutralisation: If used as intended there is no danger. Photographic
materials containing only very small quantities of the new
substance can be disposed with household refuse, discharged
on waste disposal sites or (the preferred method) destructed
by incineration.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: See 6.2.2.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - incineration: See 6.2.2.
