Description of key information

Soil simulation testing is not required according to REACH, since (1) B-TEGME is readily biodegradable and (2) since B-TEGME is not highly adsorptive to soil (Koc = 0.008 L/kg).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In accordance with EC 1907/2006, Annex IX, point 9.2.1.3, column 2, soil simulation testing is not required (1) due to the fact that B-TEGME is readily biodegradable, as shown in study section 4.1.2.1.2 and (2) due to the fact that B-TEGME is not considered adsorptive to soil (Koc = 0.008 L/kg).
