Additional information

Biodegradation in water: screening tests

The test item was biodegraded 43 % at day 28 in the test using a closed respirometer. The test item was considered inherently biodegradable.

Biodegradation in sediment and soil: screening tests

Direct and indirect exposure of the test item to sediment and soil is unlikely. It can be assumed that upon contact with sediment and soil and organic matter, the test item undergoes rapid degradation (hydrolysis) resulting in the formation of respective degradation products. Furthermore, the test item is not soluble in water and was considered to be inherently biodegradable. Therefore, simulation testing for biodegradation in sediment and soil was considered not scientifically justified.
