Description of key information

Half life period of 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol in Soil was observed to be 30 days.Based on these half life values it is concluded that 2-(2-chloroethoxy)ethanol is readily biodegradable (non persistent) in Soil.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Half-life in soil:
30 d
