Naphthalene is considered to be easily biodegradable, as demonstrated by
most of the great entirety of biodegradation studies under aerobic
conditions, one standard MITI(I) screening test even indicating ready
biodegradability. There is clear evidence of at least inherent
biodegradability with no signs of persistence.
Based on experimental evidence, bioaccumulation of naphthalene is low
with reliable BCF values in fish below 500.
Robust NOEC/EC10 values from aquatic long-term tests with naphthalene
are greater than 0.1 mg/L, not any being equal or lower than the NOEC
cut-off limit of 0.01 µg/L for the T-criterion.
