Description of key information

Being essentially elemental carbon, bulk forms of carbon black cannot be used as a carbon source and will not be biodegraded by microorganisms. The generally accepted OECD- and EU-guidelines for the examination of the biodegradability of substances can be used only for organic substances. Biodegradation testing has no meaning for inorganic substances, including inorganic nanomaterials.
