Description of key information

Additional information

The percentage biodegradation of TOFA_TETA_PAA_BADGE_CGE_Adduct reached a maximum of 9% over the course of the 28 day incubation and therefore failed to meet the requirements for ready biodegradability. Thus TOFA_TETA_PAA_BADGE_CGE_Adduct cannot be classified as readily biodegradable.

As the substance is not used under conditions with potential exposure to water, sediment or soil and due to its very low vapour pressure, making indirect deposition via air unlikely and negligible, further tests on degradation in sediment or soil are not required.
