of PBT/vPvB properties has been done on the basis of the data available
from the testing programme and considering the origin and composition of
data are available on biodegradation and hydrolysis of CarboNeXT,
because the material is not soluble in water and its main components are
plastics, not biodegradable, and paper. Therefore the material has to be
considered not easily degradable. However, no environmental emissions of
the material are foreseen: CarboNexT is produced, transported to the
sites of use and there completely burnt, in a closed life-cycle.
requirements of REACH Regulation, CarboNeXT meets the criteria for the
bioaccumulation assessment has been carried out, because no exposure of
aquatic organisms is foreseen for CarboNeXT. Moreover it is a not easily
degradable material, mainly composed of plastics and paper, whose
particle dimension is expected to avoid absorption in living organisms.
On the basis of
the above considerations, CarboNeXT is not expected to bioaccumulate.

hazardous wastes. The L(E)C50values obtained in the
ecotoxicity tests showed a lack of toxicity for aquatic organisms.
Moreover the acute dermal toxicity test and the 28-day repeated toxicity
test on rodents showed no effects related to the exposure to the
On the basis of
the above consideration, it can be reasonably assumed that the substance
does not meet the criteria of Annex
XIII of Regulation EC 1907/2006 for the classification as “Toxic”.
Summary and overall
conclusions on PBT or vPvB properties
CarboNeXT is a
material, mainly composed of plastics and paper, deriving from not
hazardous wastes. Although
environmental emissions are not foreseen, the material, if released into
the environment, is expected to be persistent (P), but it is not
expected to be neither bioaccumulable (B) nor toxic (T). CarboNeXT is
not considered to be neither a PBT nor a vPvB substance.
material does not fulfil the PBT and vPvB criteria, no emission
characterisation is performed. Furthermore on the basis of the pattern
of use, emissions are evaluated as negligible during all steps of life
cycle of CarboNeXT.
