Biodegradation:

A study with Triethylene glycol dimaleate to assess ready biodegradibility was conducted in accordance with the Council Regulation (EC) No 440/2008, Method C.4-D “Manometric Respirometry Test“(2008). This test method is in all essential parts identical with OECD Guideline 301 F (adopted July 1992).

Triethylene glycol dimaleate showed 83 % degradation after 28 days.

Therefore, it is considered to be “Readily Biodegradable“.
