Additional information

Based on valid ready biodegradation studies conducted with the constituents 2-Methylbutanol (CAS No. 137-32-6), 2-Methylpropan-1-ol (CAS No. 78-83-1) and Ethanol (CAS No. 64-17-5), Fusel oil is readily biodegradable. The substance is thus expected to be rapidly degraded by microorganisms in both the aquatic and terrestrial environments, and in accordance with Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006, –, further simulation testing for water and sediment or soil biodegradation is not necessary.
