of sulphur and nitrogen, and possibly traces of dioxin-like
compounds.

Product determined by test: N

Emergency measures in case of spillage: Absorb spillages on sand or other absorbent medium. Sweep
and transfer to waste containers for disposal at approved
tip. Wash down area with water.

and eye contact and inhalation of dust. Respirators to be
worn if dust is generated.

Disposal considerations

Industry - Possibility of recovery/recycling: Recovery of the substance from minor spillages, discharges
to effluent or from dyed fabrics is not economically
possible.

Industry - Possibility of neutralisation: Not applicable.

Industry - Possibility of destruction: controlled discharge: Provided dilution occurs to a concentration of 100 mg/litre
or lower, no acute effect on aquatic life is likely to
occur.

The substance may be disposed of at an approved landfill
site. (A650)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - incineration: The substance may be rendered harmless by incineration using
approved contractors according to the requirements of local
regulations and taking account of entry 2.3.4. (A661)

Industry - Possibility of destruction - water purification: The substance is unlikely to be appreciably degraded in
aerobic biological processes of short duration but is
unlikely to have any adverse effect on either aerobic or
anaerobic processes at sewage works. It is likely to be
removed to a significant extent by sorption on to sewage
sludge. The extent of the bioelimination (measured by extent
of colour removal) was shown to be 64.5% over days 3-25 of
the test. The substance is decolourised (76%) under
anaerobic conditions and thus part of it which may be
absorbed on to the sewage sludge is likely to be diodegraded
in a sewage works digester.

The substance is unlikely to present an acute risk to either
water purification systems or to aquatic life at
concentrations up to 100 mg/litre. In practice the levels to
be expected in aqueous effluent are far lower and also the
colour of the substance provides an effective control on its
discharge levels. (A641, A642, A643)

Public at large - Possibility of recovery/recycling: The substance will only enter the public domain in the form
of articles which may be disposed of as domestic waste.
