Additional information

Aquatic PNECs for hydrocarbons have been derived using the HC5 statistical extrapolation method and the target lipid model using representative structures. Given the large database of freshwater organisms included in the target lipid model, an assessment factor of one has been applied to the HC5.

Conclusion on classification

As the substance is not toxic towards aquatic organisms, biodegradable and with low potential for bioaccumulation, it is not classified for the environment.
