Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Read-across:

Based on the experimental results obtained with the analogue cyanuric acid (100% degradation, DOC removal 8 h), the read-across approach is applied and Trisodium cyanurate is considered biodegradable, under test conditions.

Based on the experimental results obtained with the analogue cyanuric acid (biodegrades readily under a wide variety of natural conditions, and particularly well in anaerobic activated sludge and soils, CO2 and ammonia are the initial hydrolytic breakdown products) , the read-across approach is applied and the same results can be extrapolated for substance trisodium cyanurate, under test conditions. Trisodium cyanurate can be considered as biodagradable under test conditions.
