Description of key information

Readily biodegradable: >= 69 - 100% in 28 days

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

The ready biodegradability of the target substance was assessed in a weight of evidence approach based on the grouping of substances (category approach). All tested substances of the alkyl ether sulfates (AES) Category reached degradation rates ≥ 69% indicating a rapid degradation of the substances under aerobic conditions.
