Please be aware that this old REACH registration data factsheet is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023.

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Additional information

Valid aquatic toxicity tests for fish, aquatic invertebrates and algae are available for Vinasses, residue from fermentation and are read-across among the category members.

These results clearly indicate, that Vinasses, residue from fermentation are neither acute nor chronic toxic to aquatic organisms among all trophic levels. The lowest no observed effect concentration, obtained from results of a chronic test on Daphnia magna, was used for the derivation of PNECaquatic. 

Furthermore, a respiration inhibition test on activated sludge, using the same test substance resulted in an EC50(3h) > 100 mg/L, underlining the absence of harmful effects on the aquatic environment. 

Since the substance is readily biodegradable, a chronic exposure in the aquatic environment can be excluded. Together with the absence of any harmful or toxic effects on aquatic organisms, further testing on aquatic vertebrates is scientifically unjustified. 

This assessment applies to all category members, using the principle of read-across, as stated above.
