EMA is readily biodegradable in standard OECD biodegradation tests. According
to different test guidelines methyl methacrylate, a member of the
category of lower methacrylate esters, was assessed to be readily
biodegradable in activated sludge. In addition, a GLP study on biotic
degradation in soil showed that already after 2 days < 1 % of the
radioactivity was presented as methyl methacrylate in soil extracts.
About 60 - 70 % of the radioactivity was lost due to evaporation of the
parent compound at both concentration levels. The indications are that
methyl methacrylate is rapidly lost from soil either by evaporation or
degradation. at methyl methacrylate is rapidly lost from soil either by
evaporation or degradation.
All members of the category of lower methacrylate esters will be rapidly
removed from the environment and completely mineralized.
The available data support the conclusion that EMA, like all
members of the category of lower methacrylate esters, will be rapidly
degraded in the environment.
