Additional information

Conclusion on classification

Propylene carbonate needs not to be classified for the environment based on the CLP Classification and labelling criteria.

Acute (short-term) aquatic hazard

There is no short-term aquatic hazard anticipated as the lowest valid effect concentration for freshwater aquatic organisms is >100 mg/L).

Chronic (long-term) aquatic hazard.

There is no long-term aquatic hazard anticipated as the substance is rapidly degradable ("readily biodegradable" in the carbon dioxide evolution test) and has no potential for bioaccumulation (LogKow = -0.41).
