Description of key information

Two ready biodegradability studies (OECD 301 A and 301C) are summarised. A third study investigated how to improve removal in a Sewage treatment plant. This study concludes that the product has the inherent potential to degrade after acclimatisation of the inoculum.   

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the test material was examined. Since the lag time was >240 hours, the test material does not meet the criteria for ready biodegradability. A non standard study demonstrates inherent potential for degradation after acclimatisation of the inoculum.
