Description of key information

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

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The assessment of the toxicity to microorganisms is based on effect data taken from the “Commission for the Evaluation of Substances Hazardous to Waters” (KBWS) data sheet no. 1385, which is part of the German Federal Water Act (Article 19g). Based on the collected data a substance is classified according to its water-hazardous properties (WGK 1 to 3). 2,2 -phenyliminodiethanol was classified as WGK 2, which indicates a hazard to waters. As the list with the classified substances was published in the Bundesanzeiger (Federal Ministry of Justice, 2005. Bundesanzeiger No. 142a), the classification is legally binding for the industry.

The effect of 2,2'-phenyliminodiethanol (CAS 120 -07 -0) on the growth inhibition of Pseudomonas putida was studied according to German Industrial Standard DIN 38412 -8 (KBWS, 1995). The tested concentration range ranged between 15 and 8000 mg/l. The 17-h EC50 was determined to be in the range between 4000 and 8000 mg/L. The 17 -h EC10 was assessed to be between 2000 and 4000 mg/L. Based on the available data it can be concluded that the inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when the substance is introduce in appropriately low concentrations.
