  • Toxicity to algae: EC50; Species: Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata (Green Algae) exponential growth phase; Conditions: freshwater, static; Concentration: 18000 ug/L for 72 hr (95% confidence interval: 17000-19000 ug/L); Effect: population, decreased population growth rate /formulation
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

AEROBIC: Biodegradation is expected to be an important environmental fate process for this compound(SRC). A pseudo first-order rate constant of 2.07X10-3 hr-1 was measured in an aerobic screening test conducted with a phenol-acclimated sludge inoculum over a 7 day incubation period(1). This corresponds to a half-life of about 14 days(1). A rate constant of 8.27X10-3 hr-1 was measured in an aerobic screening test conducted with a cresol-acclimated sludge inoculum over a 1 day incubation period(2). This corresponds to a half-life of about 3.5 days(2). Average concentrations of not detected, 0.84, 0.05 and 0.85 ng/L were reported for ethylparaben in gray water from 32 residences and associated effluent from aerobic, anaerobic and anaerobic+aerobic biological treatment systems, respectively. Testing was done in August, 2008 in Sneek, The Netherlands(3). Ethylparaben, present at an average concentration of 880 ng/L, exhibited half-lives of 1.8 days and 27.5 hours using an activated sludge batch test and a real wastewater treatment plant test, respectively; sampling was conducted during April and May 2010 in a metropolitan area of northwest Spain(4).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

An estimated BCF of 20 was calculated for ethylparaben(SRC), using a log Kow of 2.47(1) and a regression derived equation(2). According to a classification scheme(3), this BCF suggests the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Koc values of 209, 162 and 119 have been reported for acidic forest soil, agricultural soil and sediment samples obtained from Lake Constance, Germany, respectively(1). Based on a recommended classification scheme(2), these Koc values indicate that ethylparaben is expected to have high to moderate mobility in soil. The pKa of ethylparaben is 8.34(3), indicating that this compound will partially exist in anion form in the environment and anions generally do not adsorb more strongly to soils containing organic carbon and clay than their neutral counterparts(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.
