Description of key information

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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable

Additional information

A ready biodegradability test with the test item was performed which allows the biodegradability to be measured in an aerobic aqueous medium. The ready biodegradability was determined using a closed respirometer according to test method outlined in EEC Directive 79/831.

The test item was biodegraded 43 % at day 28. Thereore, the test substance was considered to be inherently biodegradable.
