Additional information

Indirect exposure to sediment via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable. For a substance being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process and as a consequence a transfer to sediment is not expected. Furthermore, as the logKoc is below 3 and the substance has no cationic properties, a low adsorption potential is indicated. Therefore, binding to sewage sludge is unlikely and as a consequence a transfer to sediment is not expected. Therefore, no tests on sediment organisms are provided.
