Additional information

Hydrocarbons, C14 -C20 aliphatics have been shown to have a very low toxicity towards organisms, with NOELR values equal or higher than 1000 mg/l for all species (algae, crustacean and fish).

Conclusion on classification

Hydrocarbons, C14 -C20, aliphatics (<=2% aromatics) are not classified for the environment. Therefore, the substance Hydrocarbons, C15-C20, n-alkanes, isoalkanes, cyclics, <0.03% aromatics belonging to this category is not classified for the environment.
