Persistence. It cannot be excluded that econazole is persistent, due to the lack of data.
Bioaccumulation. It cannot be excluded that econazole bioaccumulates, due to the lack of data.
Toxicity. Econazole has very high acute toxicity.
Risk. The use of econazole (sales data Sweden 2015) has been considered to result in low environmental risk.
The data on hazard and risk are based on previous environmental information on fass.se. Environmental information is missing (2022-06-30). It is voluntary for manufacturers to provide information about environmental impact on fass.se.
Fass environmental information
Fass environmental information for Pevisone (econazole, triamcinolone acetonide) from Janssen (downloaded 2018-07-12).
Persistence: No data.
Bioaccumulation: No data.
Acute toxicity: There are data for 3 trophic levels, lowest for algae (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata), ErC50 72 h = 0.17 mg/L.
PEC/PNEC is based on sales data in Sweden in year 2015. PEC/PNEC = 0.2755 which gives the risk low.
