Administrative data

biodegradation in soil: simulation testing
Data waiving:
exposure considerations
Justification for data waiving:
the study does not need to be conducted because direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely
Justification for type of information:
The US EPA property estimation program KOCWIN V2.00 calculates for the Koc of Diglyme 1.933 L/kg (Molecular Connectivity Index) or 2.846 L/kg (based on Log Kow of -0.36). Due to the low estimated Koc of Diglyme a transfer to agricultural soil via sewage sludge can be neglected. Indirect exposure via deposition from air is unlikely as Diglyme is readily photodegraded in air. Because of the low soil exposure by Diglyme a soil biodegradation study is not warranted.
