Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the substance was determined according to the EU method C.4 -D (Determination of the "Ready" Biodegradability - Manometric Respirometry Test) with the following result (Bayer AG, 1994): 50 % degradation after 28 days.

The inherent biodegradability was determined according to the OECD Guideline 302 C (Inherent Biodegradability: Modified MITI Test (II)) and results in 73 % degradation within 28 days (Currenta, 2009).

Based on these results, the substance is considered to be "Not Readily Biodegradable", but "Inherently Biodegradable" .
