Additional information

The UVCB Polyglycerine substancel is readily biodegradable and its components have very low potential for bioaccumulation, or for adsorption to soil or sediment (log Kow << 3). The EC 50s/LC50s - based on acute toxicity data in fish, Daphnia and algae - are higher than 1000 mg/l. Therefore it can be considered as non-hazardous for the environment.

Conclusion on classification

Due to the low acute toxicity to aquatic organsims as reported in three acute studies with fish, daphnids and algae no environmental classificiation is required for the UVCB Polyglycerine substance.

Conclusion:

 

CLP:

Chronic data are not available for however, the acute aquatic toxicity L(E)C50 values are > 1 mg/L for fish, invertebrates and algae, and the substance has low bioaccumulation potentia and is biodegradable. Polyglycerine does not need to be classified and labelled as environmental hazard according to the 2ndATP of the Regulation (EC) No.1272/2008 (CLP).

 

DSD:

The acute aquatic toxicity L(E)C50 values are > 100 mg/L to fish, invertebrates and algae. Polyglycerine does not need to be classified and labelled as environmental hazard according to Directive 67/548/EEC.
