Section 2 – HAZARD(S) IDENTIFICATION:

Association Name and Description

  • OSHA: This product is considered non-hazardous by the criteria specified in 29 CFR 1910.1200.
  • IARC: None listed
  • IMDG: Not Regulated
  • NTP: None listed
  • IATA: Excluded
  • IMO: Excluded

*WARNING

Steam activated carbon (especially when wet) can deplete oxygen from the air and therefore dangerously low levels of oxygen may be encountered. Whenever workers enter vessel or confined space containing activated carbon, the vessels oxygen levels should be monitored and work precautions for potentially low oxygen areas should be followed.

This product type passes the tests for self-heating substances as reflected in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (see 33.3.1.3.3), and is accompanied by a certificate from a laboratory accredited by the competent authority, stating that the product to be loaded has been correctly sampled by trained staff from that laboratory and that the sample was correctly tested and has passed the test.

Section 4 – FIRST AID MEASURES:

  • After skin contact: Flush skin with plenty of soap and water for at 15 minutes while removing contaminated clothing and shoes. Wash close before reuse.
  • After eye contact: Flush eyes with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes.
  • After ingestion: Get medical aid. Do Not induce vomiting.
  • After inhalation: Remove from exposure to fresh air immediately. Get medical aid.

Section 5 – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES:

  • Suitable Extinguishing Media: Water spray, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.
  • Unsuitable Extinguishing Media :None Known.
  • Protective Equipment and Procedures: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus suitable for surrounding fire.

Section 6 – Accidental Release Measures:

  • General Information: Use proper personal protective equipment.
  • Spills or Leaks: Clean up spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air, avoid generating dusty conditions. Sweep up, and then place into a suitable container for disposal.
  • Disposal Method: Spent granular activated carbon may be recyclable. Dispose of virgin(unused) carbon (waste or spilled) in a facility permitted for non hazardous waste. Spent(used) carbon should be disposed in.

Section 7 – Handling and Storage:
