Chemicals can reach the soil via several routes:
of sewage sludge in agriculture.
Organic peroxides, when released into the sewage of a production
plant or of a downstream’s user plant, are treated with other substances
in dedicated sewage treatment plants. The activated sludge stemmed from
these sewage treatment plants are then extracted and treated as chemical
waste in most cases.
From the production plant, the release of organic peroxide into
the sewage is very limited, not to say completely negligible. The waste
water from production plant is usually treated: at least a
physical/chemical treatment, which will neutralize potential residual
organic peroxide, and that can be followed by a biological treatment. So
it is expected that organic peroxides will be present in sludge only at
Regarding the rest of the lifecycle, organic peroxides are mainly
used as cross-linking agent/polymerization initiator for the production
of resins/rubbers/polymers. Based upon the fact that organic peroxides
are totally consumed during the process (>99%) and that those processes
are water-free (so no production of sewage sludge), it is assumed that
the soil is not exposed to organic peroxides via use of sludge.
As a consequence, we can assume that exposure of soil to organic
peroxides is negligible via the application of sewage sludge in
application of chemicals.
Based on the uses inventoried for organic peroxides we can
consider that there is no direct application of these substances on the
soil compartment. Hereunder, the relevant Environmental Release
Categories (ERC), as described in guidance R12 (version 2.0, dated
from the atmosphere.
Deposition from the atmospheric compartment involves
volatilization, vaporization or direct release of a considered substance
into the atmosphere. Due to their dangerous intrinsic physico-chemical
properties, organic peroxides are carefully handled in closed systems
and their transport and production are ruled by several regulations.
Based on organic peroxides uses too, emission to air is controlled and
deposition to soil from the atmosphere is at safe levels.
Based on these arguments no test is proposed for the soil
