Additional information

The substance, by nature of it being a reactive dye is not deemed to be biodegradable. By read across to a structural analogue, Gelb Sulfato displays low ready biodegradability in that it achieved 5% biodegradation in a 28-day study closed bottle test. This indicates that it is unlikely to achieve a half life of less than 40 or 60 days within fresh water attributed to ready biodegradation alone.
