Accidental release measures

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Coated Paper: N/A

Coating: Isolate spill area. When cleaning spills, wear
appropriate personal protective equipment including
splash-proof safety goggles and chemical resistant gloves.
Confine and contain small spills using inert material. Scoop
up absorbed material and place in container for disposal.
In the event of a large spill contain by diking with dry
sand, sorbent booms, or other absorbentmaterial. Prevent
run-off into sewers, storm drains, surface waters, and soil.
Scoop up material for recovery, or, cover withinert
absorbent material, scoop up absorbed material and place in
a container for disposal in acordance with governmental
regulations.

The substance as free oil:

Small spill - absorb spill with an inert material (e.g.
clay, dry sand or earth), and then place in chemical waste
container.

Large spill - contain spilled liquid with sand and earth.
Transfer absorbed waste materials into drums. Prevent
runoff entering into storm sewers and ditches, which lead to
natural waterways.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Preconsumer waste paper is recycled at pulp and paper mills.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - other: For use of the substance at commercial mills for R&D work,
the mills will not land apply waste water treatment sludges
containing the solvent pending the review of the risk
assessment by the UK competent authority.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: 50% recovery rate for post consumer use carbonless copy
paper.

Public at large - Possibility of destruction - water purification: 99% of the solvent removed in waste water treatment.
