The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when 2-methylaminoethanol is introduced in appropriate low concentrations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

As key study concerning acute toxicity to microorganisms a test performed by BASF (1993) according to OECD TG 209 was identified, using domestic activated sludge as inoculum. In the static test an EC20 >1000 mg/l after 30 minutes of exposure was calculated.
