Description of key information

The substance is inorganic and therefore biodegredation is not relevant.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance graphite is inorganic and expected to be degradable neither by biological nor abiotic mechanisms. The crystal modification graphite is the thermodynamic most stable modification of the element carbon, and in the form of graphite it does not cross biological membranes. Biodegradation is not relevant.
