The substance is readily biodegradable.

Additional information

Biodegradation screening:

The substance was readily biodegradable in a test performed according to ASTM 1720 -95 Sealed Vessel, the ISO/DIS-14593 Headspace and the OPPTS 835.3120 CO2 evolution biodegradation test guidelines [Gledhill WE (2005)].

Biodegradation in water and sediment:

The substance is readily biodegradable, hence simulation testing on ultimate degradation in surface water and simulation testing in sediment is not required in accordance with Annex IX sections 9.2.1.2 and 9.2.1.4 column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.

Biodegradation in soil:

The substance is readily biodegradable, hence soil simulation testing is not required in accordance with Annex IX section 9.2.1.3 column 2 of Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006.
