Description of key information

The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC50 for microorganisms:
1 000 mg/L
EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
470 mg/L

Additional information

As key study concerning acute toxicity to microorganisms a test performed by BASF (2011) according to OECD guideline 209 was identified, using domestic activated sludge as inoculum. In the static test an EC10 of 470 mg/L for the respiration inhibition after 180 minutes of exposure was calculated related to the nominal concentration.
