Description of key information

Not readily biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The probability of rapid biodegradation of the test substance has been calculated through two different tools; EPI Suite (BIOWIN v4.10) and QSAR Dyes R&C prediction tools. The overall assessment is based on the responses given by different predictive models for biodegradability under various conditions.

The substance was predicted to be not ready biodegradable.

Moreover, being the substance a dye, it is not intended to be readily biodegradable, by the nature of its design and use.
