log Pow: 2.10
Terrestrial Fate: In soils where exposure to the atmosphere can
occur, volatilization is likely to be the dominant environmental fate
process due to the high vapor pressure of bromodichloromethane. It's
highly mobile in soil and can therefore leach into ground water and
subsurface regions. Laboratory studie have indicated that
significant biodegradation can occur under anaerobic conditions.
Aquatic fate: Volatilization of bromodichlormoethane is the dominant
removal mechanism from environmental surface waters.
No information available.
Do not empty into drains.
Section 13 - Disposal Considerations
Chemical waste generators must determine whether a discarded chemical is classified
as a hazardous waste.
US EPA guidelines for the classification determination are listed in 40 CFR Parts 261.3.
Additionally, waste generators must consult state and local hazardous waste regulations to
ensure complete and accurate classification.
