Description of key information

FAT 40045/Z TE was not inherently biodegradable, but stable in hydrolytic stability test and the Log Koc was determined to be < 1.5.

Based on the data of two studies conducted to evaluate the biodegradation potential it is noted that the test substance FAT 40045 showed low biodegradation potential under the study conditions applied suggesting that the test substance is not inherently biodegradable. Hence, it can be concluded that the substance is not-biodegradable and stable in the environment. The hydrolytic stability test, abiotic degradation of FAT 40045/Z TE as a function of pH in aqueous solution performed according to OECD guideline 111 method C.7(440/2008) concluded that the test item would be stable towards hydrolysis at pH 4, 7 and 9. Also the adsorption to soil and sludge was tested using the HPLC method, the outcome indicates that the test substance does not sorb strongly to soil and sludge and can be regarded as mobile.
