Description of key information

The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In GLP-conform short term respiration test according to OECD guideline 209, no inhibition of respiration of activated sludge was observed up to the highest concentration, tested (EC10 > 1000 mg/l, BASF SE 2008). Therefore, the inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations.
