A ready biodegradability test (OECD test 301B, Modified Sturm Test) was performed to determine the biodegradability characteristics of the test substance. The study was conducted according to OECD and EC test guidelines, and was performed in accordance with GLP.
The results obtained for the degradation of sodium benzoate (reference substance) and for cumulative CO2 production by the control mixtures (81.4 mg CO2 ) fulfil the validity criteria for this test.
The mean cumulative CO2 production by mixtures containing the test substance at 10 mg C/L was equivalent to appr. 10% of the TCO2 after 2 days, 60% on Day 7 and 102% by the end of the test on Day 29.
On this basis, the test substance was considered readily biodegradable under the conditions of the test.
