In the model Vulcuren is treated as a type 1 chemical, i.e. the chemical partitions into all environmental media. Estimation is carried out at an environmental temperature of 25 °C.

Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

The distribution of Vulcuren in a "unit world" was calculated according to the Mackay fugacity model level I (Currenta, 2009) based on the physico-chemical properties. The main target compartments for Vulcuren are sediment with 50.1 % and soil with 49.5 %.
