Description of key information

Due to the fact that the substance is considered ready biodegradable, no significant concentrations are present in the sediment compartment. This is supported by exposure assessment with EUSES. The maximal local PEC value that was calculated was 2.37 x 10-3 mg/kg (w. w.) for the freshwater water sediment and 8.87 x 10-4 mg/kg (w. w.) for marine sediment. Since these concentrations are very low, no significant exposure of the sediment water or compartment is assumed and therefore simulation tests are not needed.
