Conclusions:
Biodegradation half-life of test substance 4-Nonylphenol, branched, ethoxylated in soil was estimated to be 120 days (2880 hrs)
Executive summary:

The half-life period of 4-Nonylphenol, branched, ethoxylated (CAS No. 127087 -87 -0) in soil was estimated using Level III Fugacity Model by EPI Suite version 4.1 estimation database (EPI suite, 2017). If released into the environment, 90% of the chemical will partition into soil according to the Mackay fugacity model level III. The half-life period of 4-Nonylphenol, branched, ethoxylated in soil is estimated to be 120 days (2880 hrs). Based on this half-life value of 4-Nonylphenol, branched, ethoxylated, it is concluded that the chemical is not persistent in the soil environment and the exposure risk to soil dwelling animals is moderate to low.
