Description of key information

Based on the use pattern for this substance, direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely.  Fugacity level 3 modelling using realistic mass flow splits (see chapter 5.4.3) predicts that concentrations in soil would be less than 30-70% of that in the water compartment.   In reality, less than this would partition as the substance is readily biodegradable.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The equilibrium partitioning method is sufficient to estimate the toxicity to soil macro-organisms based using the existing aquatic toxicity hazard data as a starting point.
