Additional information

2-(2-aminoethoxy)ethanol is not supposed to be directly applied to soil and an indirect exposure to sediment is unlikely since the substance is readily biodegradable. For substances being considered as „readily biodegradable“, it can be assumed that they will be biologically degraded within the STP-process. In special cases, if the substance is not entering the STP-process but is readily biodegradable, it can be assumed that it will be rapidly biological degraded in the surface water. In both cases, a transfer to the sediment compartment is unlikely. As a consequence, no tests on soil organisms are provided.
