Description of key information

Short-term toxicity of NExBTL renewable diesel (a UVCB substance of similar composition to the substance) toward juvenile rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) was determined in GLP-compliant study according to OECD Guidelines for Testing Chemicals (1992) no 203 "Fish, acute toxicity tests".  No mortality was observed during the test. Sub lethal effects were not detected either.  LL50 > 1000 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water fish

Fresh water fish
Effect concentration:
1 000 mg/L

Additional information

NExBTL renewable diesel ia a UVCB substance of similar composition to the substance with the same major components (Figure 1). Due to poor water solubility of the substance, the organisms were exposed to a Water Accommodated Fraction (WAF) of the test substance. This is a commonly accepted procedure for regulatory studies on poorly water soluble substances.
