[P-63] Disposal of Gases


This publication recommends disposal methods for more than 140 gases and their mixtures and provides safe practices for the disposal of their containers when unserviceable. This publication reflects the concern of the industrial gases industry to ensure that when the need arises for disposal of gases and mixtures, standards of health, safety, and environmental quality continue to be maintained. Only environmentally acceptable methods are proposed.

The principles, recommendations, and requirements in this publication may be applied to both routine and emergency disposal operations; however, emergency disposal operations may dictate special or one of a kind procedures.
