Description of key information

The inhibitory effect of HHCB was tested at 2 and 10 mg/l under the conditions of a Closed Bottle Test (Jenkins, 1991). After 5 days the mineralisation of sodium benzoate was 57% of ThOD. Therefore the test material is not considered inhibitory to the inoculum at a concentration of 10 mg/l. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

EC10 or NOEC for microorganisms:
10 mg/L
