Description of key information

No risk is expected for sediment organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Since Vinasses are readily biodegradable, a chronic exposure of sediment organisms is excluded. The ready biodegradation implies good metabolization in microorganisms, and presumably vertebrates as well, which is underlined by the toxicokinetic assessment for the category members. Furthermore, due to the lack of any toxicological or ecotoxicological effects, it can be safely assumed that no risk for any of the category members is expected for sediment organisms.
