Additional information

According to the available ecotoxicological data, 2-ethylhexyl-S-lactate does not require classification for environmental hazards. The substance is readily biodegradable and does not present a secondary poisoning hazard. PNECs could be derived for the aquatic environment (including sediment) and soil.

Conclusion on classification

According to the available ecotoxicological data, 2-ethylhexyl-S-lactate does not require classification for environmental hazards.
