Description of key information

Biodegradation Concawe test (Harlan 2014): inherently  biodegradable

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable

Additional information

The Concawe study was chosen in view of the very low solubility of the substance and the fact that a ready biodegradation study on one of the components of the substance (rosin CAS 65997 -04 -8) showed some biodegradation after 28 days (15%), but did not pass the criteria for ready biodegradability. The biodegradation of the substance in the Concawe test was 54% after 56 days. This is indicative for inherent biodegradation.
