Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

No toxicity studies have been carried out on soil macroorganisms with registration substance. PETROTOX v 4.01 predicted 14-d LL50 (mortality) of this substance to Eisenia fetida of 1,375 mg/kg soil dw and 56-d EL10 (reproduction) of 263 mg/kg soil dw.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

The registered substance is a complex petroleum UVCB whose constituents have variable physicochemical properties. Therefore, a modeling framework is needed to account for the bioavailability of the constituents in the mixture, which was then used to predict the toxicity of the substance as a whole. The target lipid model (TLM) and HC5, have been applied to soils and sediment using equilibrium partitioning (EqP) model. As such, modeled data are considered fit for purpose. The model used for the calculations was the PETROTOX v4.01 model. PETROTOX is a well-documented and peer reviewed model that is widely used across the chemicals industry.
