Disposal Methods

Generators of waste (equal to or greater than 100 kg/mo) containing this contaminant, EPA hazardous waste numbers U002 and F003, must conform with USEPA regulations in storage, transportation, treatment and disposal of waste.
Product: Burn in a chemical incinerator equipped with an afterburner and scrubber but exert extra care in igniting as this material is highly flammable. Offer surplus and non-recyclable solutions to a licensed disposal company. Contact a licensed professional waste disposal service to dispose of this material.
Contaminated packaging: Dispose of as unused product.
Incineration: Spray into a furnace. Incineration will become easier by mixing with a more flammable solvent.
Acetone is a good candidate for fluidized bed incineration with a temperature of 450-980 deg C and with residence times for liquids and gases: seconds.
Acetone is a good candidate for rotary kiln incineration with a temperature of 820-1,600 deg C and with residence time for liquids and gases: seconds.
Acetone is a good candidate for liquid injection incineration with a temperature of 650-1,600 deg C with a residence time of 0.1-2 seconds.
This compound should be susceptible to removal from waste water by air stripping.
Small amounts can be burned after pouring on dry sand. Larger quantities can be atomized into an approved type combustion chamber.
