Not readily biodegradable (according to OECD criteria).
Data on the ready biodegradability of the described 'red disazo pigment' are not available. However, three model calculations were conducted to assess the biodegradability in a weight of evidence. The EPI Suite v4.11 (BIOWIN Program v4.10) calculation resulted in "not readily biodegradable". The VEGA v1.1.3 prediction resulted in "NON Readily Biodegradable" as well. Additionally, the biodegradation was calculated by using CATALOGIC v5.13.1 (BOD 28 days MITI (OECD 301C) v011.15). It resulted in ca. 1% biodegradation after 28 d.
Moreover, the 'red disazo pigment' is practically insoluble and therefore considered to be essentially not bioavailable. Due to the large molecular size, cellular uptake of the pigment is unlikely. Hence intracellular biodegradation, which is the main degradation route of bacteria, is probably low. It can be concluded that the substance is likely to persist in the environment. For this reason no ready or inherent degradation studies are proposed.
