Additional information

Reactive Blue FC 75311 displays a low ready biodegradability in that it achieved 0% biodegradation in a 28-day study closed bottle test and was not inherently biodegradable, achieving 0% biodegradation in a modified Zahn-Wellens test. This indicates that the substance is unlikely to achieve a half life of less than 40 or 60 days within fresh water attributed to ready biodegradation alone.
