The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Based on the results obtained in studies conducted according to OECD Guideline 209 (Biofert Plusz) and a national guideline (L-threonine mother liquor and modified waste), respectively, a 3 h IC0=1000 mg dry matter/L found for Biofert Plusz with activated sludge as test organism can be regarded as worst case for the toxicity of L-threonine mother liquor.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
1 000 mg/L

Additional information

The toxicity of L-threonine mother liquor and modified waste (used microbiological material) to Photobacterium phosphoreum was investigated in studies conducted according to a national guideline. The 30 min EC50 was determined to be 11.6 mL/L (L-threonine mother liquor) and 27.9 mL/L (modified waste; nominal each).

The respiration inhibition of Biofert Plusz (mixture of L-threonine mother liquor and L-threonine biomass; L-threonine biomass is also named as modified waste (used microbial material sterilized), mortified biomass, mortified biomass of E. coli (K12), biomass concentrate of threonine production stem) was investigated in a study conducted according to OECD Guideline 209. Non-adapted activated sludge was exposed to a Biofert Plusz concentration of 3560 mg/L nominal for 3 h under static conditions. Biofert Plusz was found to be not toxic to activated sludge at the concentration tested (3 h IC0=3560 mg/L nominal; corresponding to 1000 mg test material dry matter/L).

In conclusion of the available data, it can be assumed that the result obtained with Biofert Plusz represents a worst case situation for the test material under investigation (L-threonine mother liquor).
