Cleanup Methods

Cover with vermiculite, diatomaceous earth, clay, or fine sand and neutralized as soon as possible using large amounts of 5% sodium hypochlorite solution. Scoop up all material and place in an approved container. After sealing, decontaminate the exterior and label. All leaking containers should be packed with sorbent (e.g. vermiculite) and placed between the interior and exterior containers. Label and dispose according to regulations. Conduct general area monitoring. If sodium hypochlorite solution is not available then use the following in order of preference: Calcium Hypochlorite and Super Tropical Bleach Slurry (STB). WARNING: Pure, undiluted Calcium Hypochlorite (HTH) will burn on contact with liquid blister agent.
To clean up spill, cover up to 15 percent calcium hypochloride. Place in container; neutralize after 12 hours if necessary. Keep sparks, flames, and other sources of ignition away. Keep material out of water sources and sewers. Attempt to stop leak if hazard. Use water spray to knock down vapors. Avoid breathing vapors and bodily contact with material. Keep upwind. Wash away any material, which may have contacted the body, with copious amounts of soap and water. Downwind evacuation must be considered. Absorb liquids in vermiculite, dry sand, earth, peat, carbon, or a similar material and deposit in sealed containers. Keep this chemical out of confined spaces, such as a sewer, because of the possibility of an explosion, unless the sewer is designed to prevent the build up of explosive concentrations. ...
