Triethanolamine is rapidly biodegraded and mineralized within a
sediment-water test system.
As key study regarding biodegradation of 2,2',2''-nitrilotriethanol in a
sediment-water microcosm test performed by West et al. (1996) is
identified. In a sediment-water microcosm-study with natural sediment
and water samples a maximum biodegradation half-life of 0.6 days and a
maximum mineralization half-life of 7.2 days was found, depending on the
initial concentration of the test substance and the origin of the test
water and sediment.
In a river-water microcosm-study with natural river water samples a
maximum biodegradation half-life of 1.7 days and a maximum
mineralization half-life of 1.9 days was found, depending on the initial
concentration of the test substance and the origin of the test water and
