Additional information

Aquatic PNECs

Data has been obtained from studies conducted with pentaerythritol. Short-term data are available for fish, Daphnia and algae (also a NOEC is available), together with a NOEC from a 21 day Daphnia reproduction study.  The lowest reported endpoint was a >100 mg/L.  The following PNECs were calculated using this endpoint:

PNEC Aqua (freshwater) - Based on an assessment factor of 50, the PNEC is 2 mg/L.

PNEC Aqua (marine water) - Based on an assessment factor of 500 the PNEC is 0.2 mg/L.

PNEC Aqua (intermittent releases) - Based on an assessment factor of 100 the PNEC is 1 mg/L.

 

STP PNEC

The lowest available endpoint is an EC10 for P. putida of > 500 mg/L.  Based on an assessment factor of 10 and an endpoint of >500 mg/L the PNEC STP is 50 mg/L.

Conclusion on classification

No classification is triggered for environmental hazard based on available data, according to Directive 67/548/EEC or EC Regulation 1272/2008.
