General Information

Implementation:
EU
Type of classification:
self-classification
Remarks:

Aquatic classification is based on the most sensitive trophic group. Algae were the most sensitive trophic level with a 72-hour ErC50of 0.11 mg BIT/L.

This value is below 1 mg/L, thus Acute Category 1 is applied. Additionally the 0.1 < EC50≤ 1.0 mg/L, therefore an M-factor of 1 is prescribed.

BIT did not fulfill the strict conditions of ready biodegradability tests to be considered readily biodegradable. On inherent biodegradability tests, BIT was also not considered inherently biodegradable. In aquatic systems with estuarine and sea water, BIT can be degraded rapidly with half-lives at 12ºC of 2-3 days in estuarine water and 5-12 days in sea water. In sandy loam soils the resulting half-lives were 9-14 hours.This means the substance is demonstrated to be ultimately degraded in a surface water simulation test with a half-life of < 16 days (corresponding to a degradation of >70 % within 28 days); thus it can be considered that BIT is rapidly degradable.

There are adequate chronic toxicity data available. The algae demonstrated to be the most sensitive trophic level regarding long-term effects with

a 72 -hour NOEC of 0.0403 mg BIT/L. This value is < 0.1 mg/L, thus Chronic Category 2 is applied.
