Description of key information

According to REACH Annex IX Column 2 (9.2.1.2.), simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water need not to be conducted if the substance is highly insoluble in water or readily biodegradable. NExBTL renewable diesel is readily biodegradable with water solubility less than 1 mg/l.
According to REACH Annex IX Column 2 (9.2.1.4.), sediment simulation testing need not to be conducted if the substance is readily biodegradable. NExBTL renewable diesel is readily biodegradable.
