Additional information

Based on the available data Glycerides, C8-18 and C18-unsatd. mono- and di-, acetates (CAS No. 91052-13-0) is considered to be not readily biodegradable (24% biodegradation after 28 d) under the chosen test conditions. Thus, persistency in the environment cannot be excluded. Further simulation tests investigating the biodegradation in water and sediment or soil according to Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, column 2, 9.2.1.2 - 9.2.1.4, are not available.

However, the environmental risk assessment shows that no risk for the environmental compartments exists (all RCR < 1) under assessed conditions and thus, further tests on biodegradation in surface water, sediment and soils are not required.
