Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of waste material is not possible.

the hazardous effect observed. The skin sensation is
believed to be due to enzyme impurities and their removal
is being investigated.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Disposal at a landfill site is the preferred means of
disposal as the substance is biodegradable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: This method is a possible means of disposal.

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is virtually insoluble in water and may be
removed by filtration. Furthermore, it is readily
biodegradable.

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Articles will not be recoverable
