Description of key information

The aerobic biodegradation of bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate in a standard MITI test (OECD 301C), was estimated with the BIOWIN model (v. 4.10). The substance is estimated to be readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The aerobic biodegradation of bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate was estimated by BIOWIN version 4.10.This QSAR model is included in the EPI Suite programs developed by Sycracuse Research Corporation for US-EPA. The conclusion of BIOWIN is that bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is estimated to be readily biodegradable in a standard MITI test (OECD test guideline 301C). The mineralisation is estimated to take days to weeks and the primary degradation occurs within a timeframe of days. Test results on biodegradation are not available. The calculated result can be used for classification and risk assessment.
