Additional information

All the data available were quoted as reliability 1 according to Klimisch criteria and flagged as key studies.

Short-term toxicity to fish:

In a 96-h acute toxicity study (Bellemain A, 2008), 10 Brachydanio rerio were exposed to Vegeflux soy at nominal loading rate concentrations of 0 (control) and 100 mg/L under static conditions (limit test). The test was performed according to OECD guideline 203 and GLP.

The 96-h LL50was higher than 100 mg/L. No mortality was observed after 96h.

Short-term toxicity to Daphnia:

The 48–hr-acute toxicity of VEGEFLUX SOY to Daphnia magna was studied under static conditions in a test performed according to OECD guideline 202 and GLP. Daphnids were exposed to control and test chemical at the loading rate (WAF) of 100 mg/L for 48 hr. The concentration was determined by TOC analysis. Immobilization effects were observed at 24 and 48 hr.

A loading rate at 100 mg/L for the test item Vegeflux Soy does not caused immobilization on

daphnids. The LL50 was higher than 100 mg/L.

Based on the results of this study, VEGEFLUX SOY would not be classified as harmful to Daphnia in accordance with the classification system of EU.

Toxicity to algae:

In a 72 hour acute toxicity study (Bellemain A, 2008), the cultures of Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata were exposed to Vegeflux soy at nominal loading rates of 0, 17, 31, 56 and 100 mg/L under static conditions in accordance with the OECD guideline 201 (GLP).

The ELr50 is greater than 100 mg/L.
