Additional information

2-phenoxyethanol can be regarded as readily biodegradable as >60% biodegradation was achieved within 10 days of the start of biodegradation.

Further biodegradation testing in water and sediment (simulation testing) and biodegradation testing in soil does not need to be performed since 2-phenoxyethanol has shown to be readily biodegradable in screening tests on ready biodegradability.
