Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The biodegradability of the substance was assessed according to the OECD Guideline OECD 301F.

The total elimination was also determined based on the theoretical carbon content and the analysis of the dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations at the end of the test.

The biodegradation of the test material based on O2consumption was calculated to be 84% after 28 days (ThOD) and 83% at the end of the 10 days window.

The results of the controls were considered valid. Under the results of this study, the test material is considered readily biodegradable.
