Description of key information

Ready biodegradation studies only:
BOD28>80%
BOD28=91.7%
BOD28=92%

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Guideline biodegradation studies have been carried out using unadapted innoculii in fresh water. The key studies clearly indicate that 2 -(2 -butoxyethoxy)ethanol is readily biodegradable in freshwater with non adapted bacterial populations.
