Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Changes in the respiration rate of activated sludge in presence of the test substance were investigated in a study following OECD guideline 209. The respiration rate of domestic activated sludge was recorded for 30 minutes. At test termination no effect of the substance up to a concentration of 1000 mg/L was observed [BASF AG 1998].
