  • Toxicity to fish: no data available
  • Toxicity to daphnia and other aquatic invertebrates: no data available
  • Toxicity to algae: EC50; Species: Geitlerinema amphibium (Blue-green Algae) Exponential Growth Phase BA-13; Conditions: saltwater, static, 20°C, pH 7.6-7.8; Concentration: 1.42 mM for 72 hr; Effect: decreased population growth /formulation
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: The concentration of perfluoroheptanoic acid decreased 40% from day 497 to day 546 in soil containing endogenous microbes incubated at 25°C(1).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

Perfluoroheptanoic acid was not found to bioaccumulate in laboratory experiments using rainbow trout (Onchorynchus mykiss) with a reported BCF of 0.62(1). The predicted biomagnification factor of 0.03 in fish was reported(2). The log BAFs of four whole common shiner (Notropis cornutus) and livers of 16 fish were 1.72-2.63 and 0.49-3.46 L/kg, respectively(3). Based on Arctic food web data collected from the Hudson Bay region of northeastern Canada, during the months of May to Sept between 1999 and 2003, the tropic magnification factor for perfluoroheptanoic acid is 0.75 ng/g protein(4).

12.4 Mobility in soil

The log Koc of perfluoroheptanoic acid was measured in three soils amended with municipal biosolids.The log Koc was 2.22 for a silty clay loam having 3 years of biosold application, log Koc of 2.82 for a fine sand with 3 years of biosolis application, and a log Koc of 1.52 for a silt loam with 1-20 years of biosolid application(1). According to a classification scheme(2), this Koc range suggests that perfluoroheptanoic acid is expected to have very high to low mobility in soil, depending on soil composition. The log Kd in sediment samples was reported as 0.96-1.03(3). The log Koc and log Kd were reported as 2.4-4.0 and 1.1-2.9, respectively, in 26 sediment samples collected along the Haihe River, China; samples were collected April to May 2010(4).

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations

13.1 Disposal methods

Product

The material can be disposed of by removal to a licensed chemical destruction plant or by controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing. Do not contaminate water, foodstuffs, feed or seed by storage or disposal. Do not discharge to sewer systems.

Contaminated packaging

Containers can be triply rinsed (or equivalent) and offered for recycling or reconditioning. Alternatively, the packaging can be punctured to make it unusable for other purposes and then be disposed of in a sanitary landfill. Controlled incineration with flue gas scrubbing is possible for combustible packaging materials.
