Applicant's summary and conclusion

Validity criteria fulfilled:
yes
Interpretation of results:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed
Conclusions:
The ready biodegradabilty of Belambre was determined by the manometric Respirometry test acording to the OECD Guidelines for testing of chemicals, Method No 301F.
Belambre undergoes no significant biodegradation (4% after 29 days) in the test conditions.
Thus, Belambre should be regarded as not readily biodegradable according to this test.
At concentration used in the test (100mg/L), BELAMBRE is not inhibitory of microorganisms.
