PBT status:
the substance is not PBT / vPvB

Sucroglyceride C16 -18 is readily biodegradable fulfilling the 10 d window criterion. Its rapid biotic degradation in water leads to negligibly low concentrations of Sucroglyceride C16 -18 in the aquatic environment and thus to insignificant concentrations in aquatic organisms.

In connection with readily biodegradability of the substance, it can be concluded that Sucroglyceride C16 -18 is supposed to be not biologically available in the aquatic compartment and it can be assumed that bioaccumulation in aquatic species is negligible.

In addition, in case of ester fission, Sucroglyceride C16 -18 consisting of sucrose, glycerol, propane-1,2-diol and fatty acids is likely to be rapidly metabolised in organisms.

Furthermore, the substance is not classified for aquatic toxicity, chronic toxicity, mutagenicity or carcinogenicity.

Based on these data, Sucroglyceride C16 -18 is not PBT/vPvB.
