Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

Short term toxicity to aquatic organisms: LC50/IC50 > 100 mg/L

Long term toxicity to aquatic organisms: NOEC 10 mg/L

Additional information

Acute tests evaluating the toxicity of 2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethyl acetate (CAS 112-15-2) to aquatic organisms from three different trophic levels are available. No effects were observed up to a nominal concentration of 100 mg/L on aquatic invertebrates and algae. Short-term effects on fish were reported leading to a LC50 (96 h) of 110 mg/L.

Long-term toxicity testing in fish and daphnia revealed no toxicity with a No Observed Effect Concentration (NOEC) of 10 mg/L.

2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethyl acetate did not cause inhibition of biodegradation in a study according to OECD 301C with activated sludge microorganisms. No inhibition of degradation was observed at the applied test concentration of 100 mg/L. A NOEC (28 d) of ≥ 100 mg/L was derived. The overall potential to cause inhibition of activated sludge microorganisms is low and significant inhibition of the subsequent degradation process in sewage treatment plants is not expected.
