Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The substance is not supposed to be directly applied to soil and further is readily biodegradable. Hence in case of indirect exposure to soil, the substance is expected to rapidly degrade. Therefore soil is not expected to be a compartment of concern. Nevertheless studies on soil macroorganisms are available for a C16 -C18 alcohol ethoxylate mixture showing non-toxicity of the compound.

In conclusion, the risk to terrestrial macroorganisms is negligible.
