Additional information

Ethanol:

Based on the use pattern for this substance, direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely. Fugacity level 3 modelling using realistic mass flow splits (see chapter 5.4.3) predicts that concentrations in soil would be less than 2% of that in the water compartment. Based on this low exposure and the fact that good data is available for the aquatic compartment, the equilibrium partitioning method is considered adequate to estimate the toxicity to soil micro-organisms based using the existing aquatic toxicity hazard data as a starting point and this end point is considered complete.
