Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Three tests on the toxicity of the substance to microorganisms are available.

In a short-term respiration test performed according to OECD guideline 209 the respiration of activated domestic sludge was determined. After 30 minutes of exposure an EC10 >=1000 mg/l was determined (BASF AG, 1996). A second short-term respiration test was performed with activated industrial sludge as inoculum. An EC10 > 1995 mg/l was determined after 30 minutes (BASF AG, 1990). The toxicity of the substance to Pseudomonas putida was tested in a growth inhibition test following Bringmann and Kuehn. After 17 hours of incubation an EC50 of 2200 mg/l was determined (BASF AG, 1988).
