The inhibition of the degradation activity of activated sludge is not anticipated when introduced in appropriate low concentrations.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

In a guideline study according to OECD 209 the respiration inhibition in activated, domestic sludge induced by citronelly acetate

was tested. After 30 minutes of exposure an EC20 > 1000 mg/l was determined (BASF AG, 1994).
