Additional information

Measured ecotoxicity data are not available for the aquatic toxicity endpoints and PNECs have not been derived for freshwater, saltwater, sediment, and soil.

In accordance with column 2 of REACH Annex VII and VIII, the acute toxicity tests do not need to be conducted if there are mitigating factors indicating that aquatic toxicity is unlikely to occur. This Category consists of substances which are gas at standard temperature and pressure and is expected to partition primarily to air; therefore aquatic toxicity tests may not be relevant. In addition, it is technically difficult to maintain aqueous concentrations of gases for toxicity testing.

Conclusion on classification

This members of the Petroleum gases, methane, ethane, propane and butane are listed in Annex I of Directive 67/548/EEC with the physical hazard- extremely flammable but are not classified for environmental hazards. This Category would not be classified for environmental hazards
