ECOSURF(TM) LF Surfactants are readily biodegradable according to OECD 301F. All components of this product are on the TSCA Inventory or are exempt from TSCA Inventory requirements under 40 CFR 720.30. This product contains a substance that will be subject to a TSCA Section 5(a)(2) Significant New Use Rule (SNUR) and export notification under TSCA 12(b). Architectural coating formulation processes that operate under zero discharge of wastewater should not trigger the SNUR conditions but each user should assess their operations to assure compliance. The SNUR will limit release to water to no greater than 14 ppb as calculated after wastewater treatment. The total removal during wastewater treatment is estimated to be > 90% based on Episuite models and demonstrated ready biodegradability. In addition, EPA does not expect significant adverse environmental effects during the uses stated in the PMN submission. These uses included formulation at less than 1% in industrial, commercial and consumer architectural coatings. TSCA 12(b) export notification is not needed when this substance is present in mixtures less than 1%.
