Description of key information

Additional information

No terrestrial toxicity data are available for the sulfated fat liquors. Data waivers are indicated. The fat liquors have very low water solubility. This low solubility and their surface active properties make testing of adsorption and desorption impractical and invalid. The fat liquors are rapidly biodegraded. There is not likely to be significant soil distribution and exposure. The biota that have been able to be tested (i.e., fish, daphnids, aquatic microbes and small mammals) indicate these substances have a very low toxicity.
