Additional information

Alcohol C12 -18 ethoxylates are readily biodegradable. Therefore it can be expected that the substance degrade in the STP process. Nevertheless, in case of release to sediment, the substance is expected to rapidly degrade in the environment. Therefore sediment is not expected to be a compartment of concern. Thus the risk to sediment organisms is regarded to be negligible.
