Description of key information

Not relevant due to rapid biodegradability.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Since 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3-propanediol (AEPD) is rapidly biodegradable, with >90% biodegradation in 7 days under inherent biodegradability test conditions, it is expected to be degraded by microorganisms in the environment as well. Biodegradation testing in soil is therefore not necessary for this substance.
