Description of key information

Bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is readily biodegradable, so water or sediment simulation testing is not required (Annex IX point 9.2.1.2 and 4 column 2).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

According to the standard information requirements in Annex IX point 9.2.1.2 and 4 column 2, a water or sediment simulation study need not be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. Bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is readily biodegradable, a water or sediment simulation test is not required.
