Additional information

In the EU Method C.4 -C (Determination of the "Ready Biodegradabality - Carbon Dioxide Evolution test) 79 % biodegradability was determined for Coconut oil, reaction product with polyethylene glycol and trimethylolpropane after 28 days. The substance reached the 10d-window (>= 60 % were degradated during 10 days).

Coconut oil, reaction product with polyethylene glycol and trimethylolpropane is regarded as "readily biodegradable".

The structural related substance coconut fatty acid mono- or diglyceride with trimethylolpropane ethoxylate reached

in the DOC-DIE AWAY Test 51 % biodegradability (DOC-decrease). Under the test conditions the substance is regarded as moderately biodegradable.

It is concluded that Coconut oil, reaction product with polyethylene glycol and trimethylolpropane is "readily biodegradable".
