Ecotoxicity

A: General Product Information
Polyethylene is an essentially biologically inert solid and considered non-toxic to the aquatic environment. It is stable (does not decompose) in landfills or in aquatic systems.

B: Component Analysis - Ecotoxicity - Aquatic/Terrestrial Toxicity
Talc (Hydrated Magnesium Silicate) (14807-96-6)
96 Hr LC50 Brachydanio rerio: >100 g/L [semi-static]

Environmental Fate/Mobility
If released into watercourses, most polyethylene pellets float. Pellets are persistent in aquatic and terrestrial systems. Product should be recovered from water and land following spills. This product has not been found to migrate through soils.

Persistence/Degradability
Product does not readily degrade. Under optimal oxidation conditions, >99% of polyethylene will remain intact after exposure to microbial actions. Product will slowly change (embrittle) in the presence of sunlight, but will not fully breakdown. Product buried in landfill has been found to be stable over time. No toxic degradation products are known to be produced.

Bioaccumulation/Accumulation
Pellets may accumulate in the digestive systems of birds and aquatic life, causing injury and possible death due to starvation.
