Description of key information

not readily biodegradable 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
under test conditions no biodegradation observed

Additional information

An assessment with estimated data and available data on similar substance was used.
Estimation of ready biodegradability on EPIWIN indicates that the substance is not readily biodegradable.
The absence of biodegradation is confirmed by the results of the biodegradability data on a similar substance exposed to activated sludge of a municipal sewage treatment plant, investigated following OECD 301A. Based on result, the tested substance is to be considered ready not biodegradable.
