Description of key information

Biodegradation in water was determined in a Modified Storm Test (CO2 Evolution Test) by Infracor GmbH (2002) according to the EU method C4 and OECD 301 B. The study was conducted with activated sludge obtained from a municipal WTP. CO2 evolution was quantified via measurement of dissolved organic carbon using a Carbon analyser.

83% degradation were observed within a period of 28 days. As >60% biodegradability were observed within the 10d-window the test item can be assessed as readily biodegradable.

Due to the ready biodegradability further degradation tests in water, sediment and soil are not necessary according to column 2 of Annex IX of REACH Regulation1907/2006.
