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), may be in a first equilibrium stage distributed in environment as follows: 0.025% to air, 0.002% to water, 12.145 to soil, 0.044 to sediment, and 87.784% removed from the system (mainly by OH radical degradation in air, but also biodegradation in the STP and the different environmental compartments).
