Additional information

The results of a key study performed to determine the ready biodegradability of FAT 46014/G by following OECD test guideline 301C (MITI test) showed 0% biodegradation at the end of 14 days.

A support study which was carried according to regulation DEV DIN 38409 - H 41-1 (1980) corresponding to 92/96/EEC C.6 and GLP, showed a range of COD of 1040-1250 mg O2/g.

Several other supporting studies showed the following results:

CSB/COD is 735 mg/g O2

BSB5/BOD is 190 mg/g O2

COD is 1145 mg O2/g test mat.

Relevant is the BOD5/COD quotient which is not > 0.5, therefore the substance is not indicative of rapid degradation.

Taking into consideration the data from key study and supporting studies, the test substance FAT 46014 is considered to be not biodegradable.
