Description of key information

The estimated chronic value (ChV) for bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate  for fish is 0.217 mg/l (ECOSAR v1.10) , the NOEC is 0.153 mg/l, calculated by dividing the ChV by √2.

Additional information

The chronic aquatic toxicity was estimated using the ECOSAR model v1.10 included in the EpiSuite models of US-EPA. In ECOSAR, substances for which the ecotoxicity is estimated are entitled to chemical classes according to their chemical structure. For each class the ecotox values for acute and chronic endpoints are estimated. Bis(2-butoxyethyl) adipate is classified under the class of the esters. The estimated chronic value (ChV) for fish is 0.217 mg/l , the NOEC is 0.153 mg/l,.

This value can be used for risk assessment.
