Additional information

Based on physico-chemical properties, the main target compartments for Fatty acids, C16 -18, butyl esters (CAS No. 85408 -76 -0) would be soil and sediment. However, the substance is readily biodegradable and highly sorptive, based on calculated estimation, and is thus expected to be eliminated in sewage treatment plants to a high extent. Release to surface waters, and thereby exposure of sediment, is therefore very unlikely.
