We use DMDS for catalyse activation of hydrocraking, hydrotreatment unit and sometime for plaforming unit. DMDS is procured packed in metal drums. Our main issue is the treatment of waste dmds and also their containers. We have a quite subsequent amount of waste drums and chemicals.

Why buy DMDS when you have an alt within own refinery. Pl contact RIL R&D, India to get the process and establish the same within refinery to recover DMDS alt product which is being routinely used in gas cracker, naphtha cracker and as sulphiding agents for all HTs.

Refer to MSDS for information. Also consult your Company’s Environment dept. they can suggest procedures for its disposal. Refer EPA or API procedures they may provide guidance into this process.

I strongly suggest you contact your supplier of the DMDS and consult with their Tech Services folks. They should be able to provide some good suggestions and experience.
