Description of key information

The substance is biodegradable in a wastewater treatment plant after adaptation.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Morpholine was proven to be degraded in a simulation test similar to OECD 303 A. After an adaptation phase of 10-12 d, the degradation ranged within 80-94 % during the operation period of 27 d [Strotmann et al., 1993].
