Additional information

The test substance 2 -ethoxyethanol has a low hazard potential for the environment since the substance is readily biodegradable, has a log Pow well below 3 (0.32) and the phototransformation in the air occurrs relatively fast (half-life 14.4 hours assuming 10^6 OH-radicals per cm³). In addition the low toxicity in aquatic toxicity testing supports the low hazard potential for the environment.
