  • Toxicity to algae: no data available
  • Toxicity to microorganisms: no data available

12.2 Persistence and degradability

Ethylene dibromide degraded readily in primary sewage sludge suspensions under both aerobic and anaerobic conditions(1); under aerobic conditions, degradation occurred within days, while under anaerobic conditions, degradation took 5-6 weeks(1). In three day die-away tests using Japanese river and seawater, ethylene dibromide was observed to have moderate degradation (21-35% degradation)(2). Low concs of ethylene dibromide (<100 ug/l) were biotransformed completely within 2 weeks by a reductive dehalogenation under methanogenic conditions in a continuous-flow column(3); sterile controls showed that some abiotic degradation was also occurring, but microbial degradation was dominant(3). In a microcosm study simulating methanogenic conditions found in aquifer material, ethylene dibromide was found to biodegrade relatively rapidly(4); after 16 weeks of incubation, greater than 99% of initial ethylene dibromide was transformed(4); in sterile controls, only 20% was transformed after 40 weeks(4).

12.3 Bioaccumulative potential

A BCF for ethylene dibromide has been measured to be < 1(1). Orange red killifish exposed to an aqueous solution containing ethylene dibromide at 15 and 150 ug/l had a BCF ranging from <3.5-14.9 and 1.6-3.2, respectively(2). According to a classification scheme(3), these BCF values suggest the potential for bioconcentration in aquatic organisms is low(SRC).

12.4 Mobility in soil

Ethylene dibromide exhibits slow to moderate adsorption to soil with measured Koc values ranging from 14 to 160(1). According to a classification scheme(2), these Koc values suggest that ethylene dibromide is expected to have high to very high mobility in soil.

12.5 Other adverse effects

no data available

13.Disposal considerations
