Description of key information

Additional information

Use of MMB does not include direct application to the soil. An indirect exposure to soil via sewage sludge transfer is unlikely since the substance is inherently biodegradable. For a substance being considered as biodegradable it can be assumed that it will be biodegraded within the STP process. Furthermore, as the logKoc is below 3 and the substance has no cationic properties, a low adsorption potential is indicated. Therefore, binding to sewage sludge is unlikely and as a consequence a transfer to the soil compartment is not expected. Tests on terrestrial organisms are considered as unnecessary.
