The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The ready biodegradation of glutaric acid was investigated according to the OECD Guideline for the Testing of Chemicals 301D (Closed bottle method). This procedure seeks to determine the biodegradability of an organic test material in a freshwater environment. The percentage biodegradation for the registered substance was found to be 73% over the duration of the 28-day study. The study was considered valid. Therefore, the registered substance can be considered as readily biodegradable. On the basis of the substance being readily biodegradable it was not considered scientifically necessary to perform a hydrolysis study. In addition based on the log Kow < 0 a low potential for adsorption is expected. Therefore a study for this endpoint was not conducted.
