Description of key information

Biodegradation in water:

The biodegradability of the test substance 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate was determined to be approximately 78 % after 28 days. Therefore the test substance is considered to be readily biodegradable.

Biodegradation in water and sediment and in soil:

Since 2-hydroxyethyl acrylate is readily biodegradable, no further investigations on the biodegradability of the substance in surface water, soils and sediments are required.
