Description of key information

A CO2 evolution test was performed according to OECD TG 301B (GLP). The test substance was degraded significantly during the test periods. Relative degradation values between 22 and 55% were observed in both experiments. Since 60% biodegradation was not reached within ten-day window, the criterion for ready biodegradability was not met. However, because the biodegradation values were > 20%, the result of this study can be considered as unequivocal evidence of biodegradation. According to OECD “Principles and strategies related to testing of degradation of organic chemicals” (2006), the item can therefore be regarded as inherently (primary) biodegradable.
