Description of key information

3 screening tests are available (ready biodegradation, inherent biodegradation and ratio BOD5/COD). All show the same result: no biodegradation observed.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

The biodegradation observed in the 3 available tests is probably underestimated because no specific measure has been taken to improve the disponibility of this poorly soluble substance.

In addition according to the Koc value (see part 5.4.1), the substance will be adsorbed to the sludge.
