Description of key information

BOD28=100%, BOD15=89%

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

In an assessment of ready biodegradability by activated sludge, ethoxypropyl acetate attained 89% degradation after 15 days and complete degradation after 28 days. It may, therefore, be considered to be readily biodegradable and meeting the 10 day window.
