No direct or indirect exposure of environment
is to be expected, as styrene oxide is solelyprocessedand
used under strictly controlled industrial conditions. The strictly
controlled conditions used are always documented in detail at all
industrial sites where styrene oxide is usedas
outlined in CSR chapter 9.
Moreover some data on environmental behavior
are available. Styrene oxide is readily biodegradable and would be
hydrolysed rapidly in water.
Atmospheric half life for degradation by
OH-radicals is about 3 days. Styrene oxide has no bioaccumulation
potential and low soil sorption potential. Moderate
volatilisation from aqueous solution is expected.
