Description of key information

Additional information

Based on the results obtained in biodegradability screening tests, Amines, polyethylenepoly (PEPA) is not readily or inherently biodegradable. A complete (ultimately) biodegradation of the substance is not expected. However, partial degradation by co-metabolic processes may occur in water, sediment and soil. Experimental studies demonstrated a co-metabolic conversion of PEPA under nitrogen limiting conditions.
