Description of key information

Biodegradation in seawater

Several studies conducted according to OECD 306 guideline were available and all concluded to the ready biodegradability of C14-20 Aliphatics (≤2% aromatic)i n seawater according to OECD criteria for biodegradability in seawater.

Biodegradation in sediment

C14-20 Aliphatics (≤2% aromatic) are readily biodegradable. Therefore, simulation tests in sediment are not required.
