    • Need to look for specifics, i know Benzene , and Propene etc can be quite hazardous, and are common in these "intermediaries" ?
  • This page goes over the risks, precautions to avoid them, and methods to negate any accidental release of pyrolysis oil (small volumes such as tipping over a container, or having resedue in washing water, not large scale oil spills !)
  • Also need to see if Vapor Cloud Explosions are a risk

Basic PPE

  • Face Sheild
  • Gloves (Need to look into materials, given some of these chemicals in the o i l may be solvents to some?
  • Well ventilated area, and if not a filter-mask

Seccondary Safety Equipment
