Description of key information

Amides, C8 -18 and C18 -unsatd., N, N-bis(hydroxyethyl) is readily biodegradable and correspondingly expected to be also rapidly biodegraded in the terrestrial environment. Therefore, it can reasonably be assumed that there is no significant longer-term exposure of the substance to soil macro and micro-organisms, terrestrial plants or birds. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No risk for soil organisms is expected to occur due to the ready biodegradability of the substance. Hence, information of effects on soil organisms is not required. Nevertheless, the equilibrium partitioning method can be used to assess the hazard for soil organisms.
