Underlying data for P, B and T are from Fass.
Fass environmental information for Atenolol Takeda from Takeda Pharma (downloaded 2019-07-09).
Persistence: No data.
Bioaccumulation: "Log Pow = 0,16 (method used: Calculation of octanol-water coefficient by fragments using the
CLOGP Software). Since log Pow < 4, the substance has low potential for bioaccumulation."
Toxicity: No data.
Risk of environmental impact of atenolol cannot be excluded, since there is not sufficient ecotoxicity data
Atenolol has been detected in treated wastewater and surface water in Region Stockholm in 2018.
Atenolol is well researched in terms of the environmental hazard and measured concentrations in the environment in Sweden. On this basis, the safety margin for environmental impact is assessed to be good.
