Description of key information

No simulation tests are available for water or sediment. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Information concerning effects on biodegradation of the test substance in sediment and surface water are not available. A screening test on ready biodegradation is available and demonstrated a biodegradation rate of 32.2% of the test substance. Furthermore, biodegradation has been examined in an enhanced ready biodegradation test. This study showed a biodegradation rate of 59 % after 60 days. Therefore, the test substance reveals a good potential for biodegradation.
