Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

One study investigating the ready biodegradability of Bis(2 -propylheptyl) adipate is available. The test was performed according to OECD guideline 301B under GLP conditions (BASF 2014). Non-adapted municipal activated sludge was used as inoculum. The test substance was tested at a concentration of 10 mg TOC/L. The validity criteria are fulfilled. The pass level of 60% biodegradation was reached in less than 10 days. After 28 days a biodegradation of 90 – 100 % was observed. Therefore, the test substance is readily biodegradable according to OECD criteria.
