ACCIDENTAL RELEASE MEASURES:

Avoid runoff to sewers or waterways. Dike area of spill to prevent spreading and pump liquid
into salvage tank. Allow remaining liquid to solidify, then, shovel into containers. Waste:
avoid washing into watercourses. Use methods consistent with local regulations. Sweep up.
Take up mechanically. Collect in suitable containers. Dike to contain spill or absorb with inert
material (e.g. sand, earth...). Stop the leak if it can be done without risk
