Description of key information

The streams in this category are not expected to be readily biodegradable. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

Experimental data from streams in the category are not available. Although QSAR estimates indicate that the representative components are not expected to be persistent and experimental studies done on the constituents of the streams show the constituents to be mostly readily biodegradable, a worst-case conclusion of not readily biodegradable has been selected for use in the exposure assessment.
