In a biodegradation screening study performed with Glycerides, C12-18 di- and tri- (CAS No. 91744-28-4), 79.5% biodegradation after 28 days was observed. Based on this result, Glycerides, C12-18 di- and tri- is considered as readily biodegradable and thus, it is expected to be rapidly biodegraded in both aquatic and terrestrial environments. Thus, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, Annex IX, Column 2,, and, further testing on biodegradation of the substance in water, sediment and soil is not required.
