Description of key information

No biodegradation in water or sediment expected.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The study is technically not feasible due to the very low water solubility. Furthermore, the substance is a pigment and based on its molecular structure the substance is designed to be persistent in the environment. In addition, the substance is considered as safe to the environment since to hazard to aquatic organism was identified and is not classified as PBT. Thus, simulation biodegradation tests in water and sediment are not proposed, since no relevant new findings are expected from such investigations.
