Environment Canada's Wastewater Technology Center operated a pilot plant at a landfill site to treat groundwater contaminated with volatile organic chemicals during the summer of 1986. The treatment system consisted of a packed air stripping column to treat the wastewater and two sequential granular activated carbon adsorbers to treat the off-gases. Among volatile organic chemicals in the wastewater were 1,1-dichloroethane, 1,2-dichloroethane, chloroform, 1,1-dichloroethylene, 1,1,1-trichloroethane, benzene, toluene, and trichloroethylene. Removal efficiencies varied from 27 to 99.9%. Optimal conditions, resulting in 94% removal of all volatile organic chemicals, were met with a 70:1 air-to-water ratio, a liquid flow rate of 4 l/min, and 1.3 cm Intalox saddles. Concentration of all compounds were below the lower detection limit of 2 ug/l in the effluent of the second granular activated carbon adsorber.
The adsorption capacities and rates of seven principal chlorinated organic compounds for six commercial GACs were investigated. All the adsorption isotherms were expressed by the Freundlich equation and the isotherms for the chloroethylenes such as trans-1,2-dichloroethylene, trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene could be shown by the modified Freundlich equation Q = k' (C/Cs)ln for each GAC. The magnitude of adsorption of the chlorinated organic compounds was in the order of: tetrachloroethylene > trichloroethylene > trans-1 2-dichloroethylene > l,l-dichloroethane > carbon tetrachloride > l,l,l-trichloroethane > chloroform. The value of k for a certain GAC could be predicted from the quantity of pores smaller than 2 mm in diameter. The adsorbed amounts were decreased by 10-20% when humic substances coexisted. The working periods of a fixed bed adsorber before regeneration were predicted by calculating breakthrough curves of various influent concentrations of trichloroethylene and tetrachloroethylene at the space velocities of 5 or 10 hr -l and it was certified that the adsorption method by GAC was feasible for removing these compounds from water.

4.First-aid measures

4.1 Description of necessary first-aid measures

General advice

Consult a physician. Show this safety data sheet to the doctor in attendance.

If inhaled

Fresh air, rest. Half-upright position. Administration of oxygen may be needed. Artificial respiration may be needed. Refer immediately for medical attention.

In case of skin contact

Remove contaminated clothes. Rinse and then wash skin with water and soap. Refer immediately for medical attention.

In case of eye contact

First rinse with plenty of water for several minutes (remove contact lenses if easily possible), then refer for medical attention.

If swallowed

Rinse mouth. Do NOT induce vomiting. Give one or two glasses of water to drink. Refer immediately for medical attention.

4.2 Most important symptoms/effects, acute and delayed

Inhalation of vapors causes nausea, drunkenness, depression. Contact of liquid with eyes may produce corneal injury. Prolonged contact with skin may cause a burn. (USCG, 1999)

4.3 Indication of immediate medical attention and special treatment needed, if necessary

Treatment: Stabilization: As with most chlorinated hydrocarbons, the immediate life-threatening complications are respiratory arrest and cardiac dysrhythmia. Hence, initially attention should be directed toward establishing an airway, providing ventilation, and improving circulation as dictated by the clinical situation. Decontamination: since ethylene dichloride is a potent hepatorenal toxin, all except minor exposures seen within 4 hours of ingestion should be given the usual methods of decontamination (ipecac or lavage/activated charcoal and cathartics). Contaminated clothes should be removed and the exposed skin washed with green soap and water. Supportive care: No methods to enhance removal and no antidotes have been proven effective. Severe cases require close monitoring of clotting times and serum glucose and calcium levels, as well as hepatic and renal function. Hemodialysis is reserved for renal failure.

5.Fire-fighting measures

5.1 Extinguishing media

Suitable extinguishing media

Do not extinguish until release can be stopped. Cool fire-exposed containers with water staying clear of tank ends.

5.2 Specific hazards arising from the chemical

Special Hazards of Combustion Products: Toxic and irritating gases (hydrogen chloride, phosgene) are generated. Behavior in Fire: Vapor is heavier than air and may travel considerable distance to a source of ignition and flash back. (USCG, 1999)

5.3 Special protective actions for fire-fighters

Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.

6.Accidental release measures

6.1 Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures

Use personal protective equipment. Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing vapours, mist or gas. Ensure adequate ventilation. Evacuate personnel to safe areas. Avoid breathing dust. For personal protection see section 8.

6.2 Environmental precautions

Evacuate danger area! Consult an expert! Personal protection: filter respirator for organic gases and vapours adapted to the airborne concentration of the substance. Ventilation. Do NOT let this chemical enter the environment. Do NOT wash away into sewer. Collect leaking and spilled liquid in sealable containers as far as possible. Absorb remaining liquid in sand or inert absorbent. Then store and dispose of according to local regulations.

6.3 Methods and materials for containment and cleaning up

Environmental considerations: land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. /SRP: If time permits, pits, ponds, lagoons, soak holes, or holding areas should be sealed with an impermeable flexible membrane liner./ Dike surface flow using soil, sand bags, foamed polyurethane, or foamed concrete. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash, cement powder, or commercial sorbents. Apply "universal" gelling agent to immobilize spill. Apply appropriate foam to diminish vapor and fire hazard.

7.Handling and storage

10.Stability and reactivity

10.1 Reactivity

no data available

10.2 Chemical stability


10.3 Possibility of hazardous reactions

Flammable liquid ...The vapour is heavier than air and may travel along the ground; distant ignition possible. As a result of flow, agitation, etc., electrostatic charges can be generated.Liquid ammonia and ETHYLENE DICHLORIDE can cause an explosion when mixed, NFPA 491M, 1991. A tank of dimethyl amino propyl amine exploded violently when it reacted with wet ethylene dichloride which had been the tank's previous contents [Doyle 1973]. Halogenated aliphatic compounds, such as ethylene dichloride, are moderately or very reactive. Halogenated organics generally become less reactive as more of their hydrogen atoms are replaced with halogen atoms. Materials in this group are incompatible with strong oxidizing and reducing agents. Also, they are incompatible with many amines, nitrides, azo/diazo compounds, alkali metals, epoxides, aluminum

10.4 Conditions to avoid

no data available

10.5 Incompatible materials

Explosion can result when ethylene dichloride, is mixed with liquid ammonia, dimethylaminopropylamine, nitrogen tetroxide, metal powders, organic peroxides reducing agents, & alkali & alkali earth metals. Mixtures with nitric acid are easily detonated by heat, impact, or friction. Mixtures with mercaptans form thioethers & generate heat while mixtures with nitrides generate heat & ammonia forming toxic fumes.

10.6 Hazardous decomposition products

Ethylene dichloride decomposes slowly becoming acidic and darkening in color.
