The test item was considered to be not ready biodegradable.

Additional information

Biodegradation in water:

The test item was considered to be not ready biodegradable. According to the test guidelines the pass level for ready biodegradability is 60 % of ThODNH4. Any correction of the BOD values with the observed nitrite values was considered as not necessary. According to the test guidelines the test item can be assumed as not inhibitory on the activated sludge microorganisms because the degradation in the toxicity control group was higher than 25 % within 14 days. The percentage biodegradation of the reference item confirms the suitability of the used activated sludge inoculum.
