Description of key information

As an inorganic substance with the chemical structure "C", carbon black can not be used as a carbon source and will not be biodegraded by microorganisms. The generally accepted guidelines for the examination of  the biodegradability of substances (i.e., OECD- and EU-guidelines) can be used only for organic substances. A biodegradation study is scientifically unjustified

Key value for chemical safety assessment
