Results

In contact with the flame of the gas burner, the test substance glowed and turned into a grey residue. Grey smoke was observed. After removal of the ignition source, no propagation of combustion of the test substance was observed.

Interpretation of results:
other: not highly flammable
Conclusions:
The preliminary screening test was performed for the determination of the flammability of Vinasses.

No propagation of combustion of the test substance along 200 mm length of the pile within 4 minutes was observed. According to the guidelines, performance of the burning rate test is not required. Based on the results obtained, the test substance is considered ‘not highly flammable’.

Description of key information

Not flammable upon ignition.
No pyrophoric properties.
Does not liberate flammable gases on contact with water.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Flammability:
non flammable

Additional information

For dry matter of Vinasses, flammability is derived from a test with Vinasses, residue of fermentation containing Corynebacterium glutamicum (EU Method A.10). Since all Vinasses are very similar in composition, flammability is as well very similar.

 

Based on experience in handling and use, Vinasses have no pyrophoric properties and do not emit flammable gases in contact with water; therefore, pyrophoricity and flammability are not expected for Vinasses in form of suspension/aqueous solution and paste.

Justification for classification or non-classification

No classification for Vinasses in form of suspension in water, paste and in dry matter according to the DSD (67/548/EEC) and CLP (1272/2008/EC) criteria.
