Description of key information

AMIX TE (Oxirane, reaction products with ammonia, distn. residues, CAS 68953-70-8) is readily biodegradable (according to OECD criteria).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

In a GLP study according to OECD 301A, the ready biodegradability of AMIX TE (CAS 68953-70-8) was tested (BASF AG, 1996, project no. 95/0675/21/1). The inoculum was non-acclimated activated sludge from a laboratory sewage treatment plant receiving domestic and synthetic sewage. The substance was removed by 90 to 100% based on DOC after 20 d. The 10 d window was kept. Therefore it can be concluded that the substance is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
