What is the Environmental Impact of Methyl Methacrylate?

Oct 21, 2020

As an MMA Plant, let me share with you.

Environmental impact

Hazardous characteristics: flammable, its vapor and air can form an explosive mixture, which can cause combustion and explosion when exposed to open flames and high heat. Under the action of heat, light and ultraviolet rays, it is easy to polymerize, and the viscosity gradually increases. In severe cases, all monomers in the entire container can undergo irregular explosive polymerization. Its vapor is heavier than air, and can spread to a considerable distance at a lower place, and will ignite back when it encounters a fire source.

Methyl Methacrylate Production

Hazardous combustion products: carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide.

Fire fighting method: firefighters must wear full-body fire-proof and gas-proof clothing and put out the fire in the upwind direction. In the event of a big fire, firefighters must operate in protective shelters. Extinguishing agent: alcohol-resistant foam, carbon dioxide, dry powder, sandy soil. Water extinguishing is ineffective, but water can be used to keep the containers in the fire scene cool.

Emergency treatment: Quickly evacuate personnel from the contaminated area to a safe area, isolate them, and strictly restrict access. Cut off the fire source. It is recommended that emergency personnel wear self-contained positive pressure respirators and anti-static overalls. Cut off the source of leakage as much as possible. Prevent entry into restricted spaces such as sewers and flood drains. Small leakage: absorb with sand, vermiculite or other inert materials. Or brush with an emulsion made of non-flammable dispersant, and put the lotion into the wastewater system after dilution. A large number of leaks: construct dikes or dig pits for storage. Cover with foam to reduce steam disasters. Spray water or foam to cool and dilute the steam to protect the on-site personnel. Use explosion-proof pump to transfer to tank truck or special collector, recycle or transport to waste disposal site for disposal.
