Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

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.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable, fulfilling specific criteria

Additional information

The biodegradation assessment was based on an OECD TG 310 Sealed-Vessel CO2 Evolution Test (Headspace Test), with and without enhanced exposure measures. Although not ready biodegradable, the profile of biodegradation for the test substance when enhanced with Tween surfactant on a GF/C paper support was similar to that for the test substance without enhancement measures. However, the extent of degradation was increased by about 14% (to 69.3%) and exceeded the 60% threshold. Using the surface area enhancement measures as described, CNSL Technical Grade is considered to be ultimately biodegradable. However, it should be noted that as the test substance is a mixture, different rates of degradation may occur under realistic conditions.
