Description of key information

Biodegradation in water

The ready biodegradability of the test item was assessed over a 28 day period in a closed bottle test (EU method C 4-E). The test material attained up to 2.9 % biodegradation after 28 days whereas the reference substance (Sodium benzoate) was 60.5 % degraded 28 days. These results indicate that the test item cannot be classified readily biodegradable under conditions of the test.
