Cleanup Methods

ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES: Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Use personal protective equipment. Avoid breathing vapors, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Environmental precautions: Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Do not let product enter drains. Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up: Soak up with inert absorbent material and dispose of as hazardous waste. Keep in suitable, closed containers for disposal. /Hydrogen peroxide solution (>/= 30% to <50%)/
Environmental considerations - land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. Dike surface flow using soil, sand bags, foamed polyurethane, or foamed concrete. Dilute slowly with water. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash or cement powder. /Hydrogen peroxide, aqueous solutions/
/LABORATORY QUANTITIES/ Wear face shield and goggles, laboratory coat, and butyl rubber gloves. Cover spill with a 1:1:1 mixture by weight of sodium carbonate or calcium carbonate, clay cat litter (bentonite), and sand. Dampen with water. Using a soft plastic scoop, transfer the mix into a container. Transport to the fume hood. Slowly add to a pail of cold water. Gradually add to an excess of aqueous sodium metabisulfite solution. Decant the liquid to the drain. Treat the solid as normal refuse.
