PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB
Justification:

Persistence Assessment

The substance is readily biodegradable and therefore based on initial persistence screening is not expected to meet the Persistent (P) or very Persistent (vP) criteria.

Bioaccumulation Assessment

An evaluation of representative hydrocarbon structures indicate some structures meet the Bioaccumulative (B) or very Bioaccumulative (vB) criteria (Lampi et al., 2010).

Toxicity Assessment

No representative structures were identified as PB or vPvB, therefore a toxicity assessment is not needed.

Summary and overall Conclusions on PBT or vPvB Properties

No representative hydrocarbon structures were found to meet the PBT / vPvB criteria. See detailed report in Section 13: An Evaluation of the Persistence, Bioaccumulation and Toxicity of Petroleum Hydrocarbons (Lampi et al., 2010)
