Hazard for predators

Additional information

Substance is a gas and is extremely unlikely to reside in the aquatic or terrestrial compartment.  Deriving an aquatic or terrestrial PNEC for a gas is unreasonable and technically of little use for risk assessment as the substance will not be present in the aquatic or terrestrial environment. 

Conclusion on classification

The lowest calculated acute result is a 96 hr EC50 for green algae of 6.5mg/L. A measured log Kow of 2.31 -2.4 for members of the butenes category indicates the potential for bioaccumulation to be low. Measured data are not available to demonstrate that butenes are readily biodegradable, but QSAR estimates indicate that biodegradation is expected to be rapid. In addition, butenes are expected to rapidly partition to the air from water, further reducing the potential for exposure.

Taken together with the acute toxicity results, these results do not support any classification for acute or chronic hazard to the environment under the DSD or CLP Regulations.
