New Biodegradation Method
Chemex investigating potential new Biodegradation Method
Chemex will be at the forefront of a potential new Biodegradation method proposed to replace the existing OECD 306 (Marine Biodeg) study. There have been a number of issues raised with regard to the reproducibility of data produced for this study type and industry is pushing for change. If proposals are approved for further investigation into a replacement/alternative for the OECD 306 test, then Chemex will be involved in the resultant ring test in cooperation with a major industry player. The industry is currently awaiting a response from the regulators to get this proposal pushed through.
