Description of key information

Suitable information that has been read across from the vacuum gas oils, hydrocracked oil and distillate fuels indicates that this category can be considered readily biodegradable.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Degradation was achieved at varying levels in the available biodegradation in water screening tests. Two tests indicate that the substance is readily biodegradable (ignoring the 10 day window). As the 10 day window is not relevant to UVCB substances, therefore the substance is considered readily biodegradable.
