Description of key information

Combination of the SimpleTreat STP modelisation and a Fugacity Level III model (use of the distribution from the STP as input for the Fugacity model) indicates that Thujopsene will be mainly emitted to air in which its half-life is relatively short, and adsorbed on solid matter. The initial emissions going through a standard STP, and from it to air, water and soil (sludge application on soil), will be distributed in environment as follows: 6.37E-8% to air,1.64E-5% to water, 9.96E-2% to soil, 3.73E-4% to sediment, and 99.9% removed from the system (mainly by OH radical degradation in air, and also by biodegradation in the STP and different environmental compartments).
