The toxicity control achieved 80% degradation after 14 days, this
confirmed that the test material was not toxic to sewage treatment
micro-organisms used in the test.
DOC analysis: Analysis of the test material vessels revealed 100%
degradation in both replicates. For sodium benzoate, 100% degradation
was also observed in both replicates.
The ready biodegradability of the test item was determined in an OECD 301B guideline test.
In a OECD 301B guideline study with non-adapted activated sludge, 72%
biodegradation was achieved after 28 days based on carbon dioxide
production (60% being surpassed within 10 days after reaching 10%).
The test item can therefore be considered readily biodegradable.
