For Emergency Responders Protective Equipment: Use personal protective equipment. Follow safe handling advice and personal protective equipment recommendations. Emergency Procedures: 6.2. Environmental Precautions Discharge into the environment must be avoided. Prevent further leakage or spillage if safe to do so. Prevent spreading over a wide area (e.g. by containment or oil barriers). Retain and dispose of contaminated wash water. Local authorities should be advised if significant spillages cannot be contained. 6.3. Methods and Material for Containment and Cleaning Up For Containment: Soak up with inert absorbent material. For large spills, provide diking or other appropriate containment to keep material from spreading. If diked material can be pumped, store recovered material in appropriate container. Methods for Cleaning Up: Clean up remaining materials from spill with suitable absorbent. Local or national regulations may apply to releases and disposal of this material, as well as those materials and items employed in the cleanup of releases. You will need to determine which regulations are applicable. Sections 13 and 15 of this SDS provide information regarding certain local or national requirements. 6.4.
