Description of key information

The Modified Sturm Test was used to measure the aerobic degradation of Triethanol amineacetate

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
inherently biodegradable

Additional information

60 % biodegradation was not reached within 10 days. However, after 28 days Triethanol amineacetate was biodegraded significantly (50 and 63 %) and thus the substance is inherently biodegradable.
