Additional information

The substance is inherently ultimately biodegradable. Average 60% of the test material is mineralized between day 3 (10% mineralization) and day 10 (70% mineralization) by non-adapted sludge. Adapted sludges mineralized even faster (as expected): Average 60% of the test material is mineralized between day 1 (10% mineralization) and day 5 (70% mineralization). Within two weeks, 100% of the test material had been mineralized by both non-adapted and adapted sludges. Since the substance is completely eliminated from waste water within short time (i.e., within maximum 14 days), quantities which may enter surface waters and soil will be negligible. Hence further hazard assessments for the environmental compartments surface water/sediment and soil are considered obsolete.
