In addition to following EH&S general spill response directions (http://chemtoolkit.stanford.edu/emergencies), integrate the additional measures for spills involving nanomaterials:
- Use wet clean up methods or vacuum cleaners equipped with HEPA-filters.
- Do not dry sweep or use conventional vacuum cleaners.
- Collect spill cleanup materials in a tightly closed container
- Manage spill cleanup debris as hazardous waste.
