An in vivo test data on the
analogous substance, Distillates (petroleum), straight-run middle (EC:
265-044-7) showed no chromosome damage was observed in the bone marrow
chromosome aberration test. This was supported by the in vivo
micronucleus erythocyte test conducted using Distillates (petroleum),
hydrotreated middle (EC: 265-148-2).
diesel is produced from straight run gas oil (corresponding to EC
265-044-7: considered non-carcinogenic) by hydrotreatment and except for
the small excess of C17-C18 alkanes introduced as a consequence of
soybean oil addition before hydrotreatment it corresponds to
hydrotreated gas oil (EC 265-148-2). It
has a ‘final boiling point’ of 346°C, a typical aliphatic hydrocarbon
content around 80% and 0.5% - 1.4% (NOISE - SFC analysis) 3-ring
Polycyclic Aromatics (no detected 4+-ring content). Based
on all of the data discussed above, it is therefore predicted that
Renewable Diesel would be negative (or at most give equivocal results)
in the Ames test, would give either weakly positive or equivocal results
in a mouse lymphoma cell mutation assay and would give negative results
for chromosome damage in vivo.
Based on the results from in vivo genetic toxicity studies conducted
with analogous substances, it is expected that Renewable Diesel will be
