Applicant's summary and conclusion

Conclusions:
In accordance with REACH Annex XI, the soil simulation testing (required in section 9.2.1.3) does not need to be conducted as the substance activated carbon does not contain any hydrogen available for dehydrogenation; thus there is no energy gain by enzymatic dehydrogenation, so further biodegradation of this molecule will not occur.
Executive summary:
