Description of key information

The ready biodegradability of l-limonene was determined in the Closed Bottle test performed according to slightly modified OECD, EU and ISO Test Guidelines, and in compliance with the OECD principles of Good Laboratory Practice. l-limonene did not cause a reduction in the endogenous respiration and is therefore considered to be non-inhibitory to the inoculum. l-limonene was biodegraded 85% at day 28. Hence, this substance is considered as readily biodegradable.
