Description of key information

Short-term toxicity of NExBTL renewable diesel (a UVCB substance of similar composition to the substance) toward a water flea Daphnia magna was determined in GLP compliant laboratory according to OECD Guidelines for Testing Chemicals (2002) no 202 "Daphnia sp, Acute immobilisation test". No adverse effects were detected in the test. EL50 > 100 mg/l.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Fresh water invertebrates

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.
