A study on the
toxicity of a range of concentrations of methyl acrylate towards soil
micro-flora was conducted according to OECD TG 217. The EC50 for soil
micro-flora based on effects on carbon cycle was determined to be
greater than 1000 mg/kg dry mass soil.
Since methyl acrylate
is readily biodegradable and no direct releases to soil from point
sources are known, no significant exposure of the terrestrial
compartment is expected. At production sites acrylates are handled in
closed systems for polymerisation. Diffuse releases into the environment
may occur from residual monomers in the polymeric products. No further
testing in the terrestrial compartment is required based on such low
exposure levels. This
is also in accordance with Table R.7.11—2 of Chapter R.7c of ECHA’s
guidance (version 3.0 ; June 2017) since methyl acrylate can be assigned
to the Soil Hazard Category 1.
