epsilon-Caprolactam is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
The potential for biodegradation of epsilon-Caprolactam has been
comprehensively investigated. As indicated by the modified MITI (I) test
(OECD 301 C), it is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria
since the degradation after 14 days was 82 % based on BOD (CITI, 1992).
Results from other biodegradation tests indicate that
epsilon-Caprolactam can be easily eliminated from water by
biodegradation (Zahn & Wellens 1974 & 1980; BASF SE 1995 & 1982; Zahn. &
Huber 1975; Pitter 1976)
