Description of key information

Additional information

DG HF/2000 is not readily biodegradable; furthermore, available data suggest that the substance has no potential for ultimate biodegradation, whereas there is no sufficient information to judge the primary biodegradability potential.

In a precautional principle, the substance is regarded and treated as if it would not even be inherent biodegradable in water.

Based on the Chemical Safety Assessment the exposure of water/sediment and soil will be negligible as the substance is used in closed systems at 100 %. Plants are provided by internal recycle systems and all production residues are re-used. No dispersive use is reported. No further tests on biodegradation are proposed.
