Applicant's summary and conclusion

Executive summary:

INDIRECT PHOTOLYSIS in soil  OH radical induced indirect photolysis of C20/22 ATQ in air can be estimated with US EPA AOPWIN Program estimating low degradation half-lives (C20 homologue 9.7h, C22 homologue 9h). Therefore C20/22 ATQ may be degraded on soil surface by indirect photolysis but as C20/22 ATQ is rapildly biodegraded in aerobic soils (see IUCLID Section 5.2.3) indirect photolysis will play a minor role in degradation.
