Valid aquatic toxicity tests for fish,
aquatic invertebrates and algae are available for Vinasses, residue of
fermentation and are read-across to Vinasses, residue of fermentation, depotassified.
No toxic effects were observed in acute
and chronic tests performed at a nominal concentration of 100 mg/L. Acute
values determined are >56 mg/L (EC50) and >58 mg/L (LC50) for Pseudokirchneriella
subcapitata and Cyprinus carpio, respectively. NOECs
determined in chronic studies are 23 and 42 mg/L for Daphnia magna
and 56 mg/L for Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata. These results
clearly indicate, that Vinasses, residue of fermentation are neither
acute nor chronic toxic to aquatic organisms among all trophic levels.
The lowest no observed effect concentration, obtained from results of a
chronic test on Daphnia magna, was used for the derivation of
Furthermore, a respiration inhibition
test on activated sludge, using the same test substance resulted in an

Since the substance is considered as readily
biodegradable, a chronic exposure in the aquatic environment is of low relevance.
Together with the absence of any harmful or toxic effects on aquatic
organisms, further testing on aquatic vertebrates is scientifically
The same applies to the terrestrial
environment. Due to the ready biodegradability, a chronic exposure of
terrestrial organisms is of low relevance. Furthermore, due to the lack
of any toxicological or ecotoxicological effects, it can be assumed that
there is no risk for terrestrial organisms and no effects of secondary
poisoning to predators, including birds. This assessment is underlined
by the fact that Vinasses have been used as animal food for decades and
also by their use as fertilizer. Therefore, no tests on terrestric
organisms are provided and no PNECs derived.
The available data on
environmental toxicity of the substance are conclusive but not
sufficient for classification according to the DSD (67/548/EEC) and CLP
