Additional information

Ethylene diformate (CAS 629-15-2) is considered to be readily biodegradable. The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments and therefore, in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006, Annex IX, column 2, 9.2.1.2. - 9.2.1.4., further simulation tests for water and sediment or soil biodegradation are not necessary.
