Not readily biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The test substance is not readily biodegradable. It reached a maximum of 47% biodegradability, but did not meet the 60% pass criteria by day 28 in the Ready Biodegradation test (OECD 301D, Closed Bottle Test). In a Zahn-Wellens/EMPA Test, the test substance exhibited a slow rate of biodegradation in an activated sludge test system, and is considered inherently biodegradable.
