Based on an assessment of the nature of the substance, Thermal cracking oil from blends of rubber, fuel oils and paraffin waxes, steam-stripped, along with an assessment of available figures for bioconcentration factors (BCF) for well-represented, poorly water soluble components of the oil, it is expected that the oil will have a high bioaccumulation potential, with a BCF of 788. This conclusion is supported by the partition coefficient range measured on the substance’s parent oil, Gas oil (polymer-derived), thermal cracked, full range.
