Description of key information

Additional information

Based on the use pattern for this substance, direct and indirect exposure of soil is unlikely. Fugacity level 3 modelling using realistic mass flow splits (see chapter 5.4.3) predicts that concentrations in soil are unlikely to be significantly greater than the water compartment and in many circumstances are likely to be significantly lower than in the sediment compartment. In reality, less than this would partition as the substance is readily biodegradable. A combination of data for the water and sediment compartments is believed to be sufficient to assess the toxicity of this substance to the environment.
