Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

There are two key studies available regarding ready and anaerobic biodegradability, respectively. A GLP-test on ready biodegradability was performed according to OECD guideline 301A using non-adapted activated sludge (BASF 1999). After 21 days a DOC removal of 90-100% was measured. Sklyar et al. (1999) performed a non-guideline test to assess the anaerobic biodegradability of thiodiglycol using sludge from the laboratory upflow anaerobic sludge blanket reactor. They found a degree of biodegradation of 42% after 185 days related to the COD.
