Hexachlorocyclopentadiene

CAS RN:77-47-4

Disposal Methods

Generators of waste (equal to or greater than 100 kg/mo) containing this contaminant, EPA hazardous waste number U130, must conform with USEPA regulations in storage, transportation, treatment and disposal of waste.
A potential candidate for fluidized bed incineration at a temperature range of 450 to 980 deg C and residence times of seconds for liquids and gases, and longer for solids. A potential candidate for rotary kiln incineration at a temperature range of 820 to 1,600 deg C and residence times of seconds for liquids and gases, and hours for solids. A potential candidate for liquid injection incineration at a temperature range of 650 to 1,600 deg C and a residence time of 0.1 to 2 seconds.
The following wastewater treatment technology have been investigated for hexachlorocyclopentadiene: Concentration process: Stripping.
Recommendable Treatment and Disposable Methods: Incineration. Incineration after mixing with another combustible fuel. Care must be exercised to assure complete combustion to prevent the formation of phosgene. An acid scrubber is necessary to remove the halo acids produced.
HCCPD is a potential candidate for fluidized bed incineration at a temperature range of 450-980 deg C and residence times of seconds for liquids and gases, and longer for solids. It is also a potential candidate for rotary kiln incineration at a temperature range of 820-l ,600 deg C and residence times of seconds for liquids and gases, and hours for solids. HCCPD is also a candidate for liquid injection incineration at a temperature range of 650-1,600 deg C and a residence time of 0.1-2 seconds. Rotary kiln or fluidized bed incineration methods are acceptable disposal methods for these wastes. HCCPD can be incinerated after mixing with a combustible fuel; however, this mixture should be completely combusted to prevent the formation of phosgene, and an acid scrubber is necessary to remove the halogen acids produced.
