Description of key information

The effects of farnesane on the respiration of activated sewage sludge micro-organisms were evaluated in a guideline read-across study on farnesene, a structurally related analogue. The study gave a 3-Hour EC50 value of greater than 1000 mg/l.  The No Observed Effect Concentration (NOEC) after 3 hours exposure was 1000 mg/l. 
Based on the results of a read-across study (OECD TG 209), the test substance is not expected to inhibit the activity of sewage sludge micro-organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
1 000 mg/L
