Description of key information

Additional information

During waste water treatment, the substance is completely mineralized to CO2 under inherent biodegradation conditions, within 14 days at the latest, i.e. it is biologically instable. 70% are mineralized within 10 days (non-adapted sludge). Adapted sludge mineralize faster, since 70% degradation where reached within 5 days. Hence it is irrelevant for environmental contamination, whether the substance is abiotically stable or not, since - due to its mineralization - contamination of the environment via surface waters will not occur and does hence not have to be considered for the Chemical Safety Assessment.
