ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of BDTP

Pursuant to section 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of Phenol, 2-(2H-benzotriazol-2-yl)-4,6-bis(1,1-dimethylpropyl)-, hereinafter referred to as BDTP, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN) 25973-55-1. This substance was identified as a priority for screening assessments because it met the categorization criteria under subsection 73(1) of CEPA.

BDTP does not occur naturally in the environment. The substance is not manufactured in Canada; results from a survey conducted under the authority of section 71 of CEPA indicate that, in the year 2000, between 100 000 and 1 000 000 kg of the substance was imported into Canada for use as an ultraviolet light absorber in automotive and industrial coatings, paints and plastics. Based on more recent information provided by stakeholders on a voluntary basis, Canadian import and use quantities of BDTP were in the range of 10 000 and 100 000 kg in 2012 and 2013.

BDTP has low solubility in water, a high octanol-water partition coefficient and a low vapour pressure. It is not expected to be significantly present in air and is not subject to long-range atmospheric transport. If released to water, the substance is likely to largely partition to particles and organic matter because of its hydrophobic nature, consequently ending up in sediment. If released to soil, it remains in that medium.

Experimental data indicate that BDTP does not degrade rapidly in water, soil or sediment. Empirical data and model predictions also suggest that the substance has the potential to bioconcentrate and bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms and may biomagnify in trophic food webs.

In Canada, BDTP is expected to be primarily released from industrial uses to surface water and ultimately partition in sediment. In a recent wastewater monitoring project, the substance was found in very low concentrations in influents and effluents of the wastewater treatment systems, biosolids, surface water and sediment in Canada. It has also been found in soil and biota in other countries.

Ecological assessment

To evaluate potential exposure to BDTP in the Canadian aquatic environment, predicted environmental concentrations (PECs) were conservatively estimated for two industrial sites based on the highest use quantities identified for each site, aiming to characterize the industrial releases of this substance to surface waters from the manufacture of plastics and from the manufacture of paints and coating products. To deal with uncertainty associated with the industrial uses of BDTP and potential non-representativeness of the selected sites, a number of generic scenarios were developed. Both the short-term concentration near the BDTP discharge location and the longer-term exposure to aquatic organisms in the receiving water body were estimated.

To assess the exposure of fish and wildlife, the aquatic PECs were used to estimate the tissue residue of BDTP in mid-trophiclevel fish, which was further applied to calculate the total daily intakes (TDI) for fish-eating terrestrial organisms (mink and river otters) as indicators of exposure. Exposure of BDTP in sediment was also estimated; however, due to a lack of sediment effects data, a risk quotient analysis was not conducted for this compartment.

The only empirical toxicity data available for BDTP are from acute toxicity studies on aquatic organisms reporting no effect at the water saturation level. Given the poor bioavailability of the test substance in water, especially during a short-term exposure, the uptake rate of the substance from water alone may not be adequate to reach the internal effect concentration in test organisms. Therefore, experimental data reported from acute aquatic toxicity studies are considered insufficient to characterize the toxicity of this substance.

A critical body burden (CBB) approach and a wildlife exposure assessment were used to characterize the effect of BDTP on aquatic and wildlife organisms. In the CBB approach, the acute and chronic external effect concentrations were estimated for fish, based on the bioaccumulation potential of this substance and the internal effect thresholds for hindered phenols. In the wildlife exposure assessment, the effect on terrestrial wildlife was characterized by the chronic toxicity reference values (TRVs) determined for mink and river otters, that were developed based on data from a repeated dose toxicity study in rats.

In the two industrial site–specific scenarios, both the short-term concentrations near the discharge point and the longer-term exposure concentrations in the receiving water were found to be below the corresponding external effect concentrations determined for fish in the CBB approach. This suggests that the risk to aquatic organisms in the surrounding Canadian environment is low. For wildlife, TDIs for mink and river otters were below their respective chronic toxicity thresholds, indicating that the risk to terrestrial wildlife associated with a long-term consumption of BDTPcontaminated fish is not significant for the sites selected to represent the plastics manufacture and the paints and coatings sector.

In the generic scenarios, high tissue residue concentrations could be found in fish if the total release of BDTP from a plastics manufacturing company was assumed to enter a small river. Assuming the wildlife receptor spends 100% of its time in the contaminated area and eats contaminated fish, long-term TDIs of BDTP by terrestrial wildlife would be close to, or slightly higher than, the chronic TRVs. Considering that a potential risk was identified only in the generic scenarios when very conservative assumptions were made, more weight of evidence is given to the outcomes from the site-specific scenarios.

Based on the overall results of the ecological assessment, it is concluded that BDTP does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as it is not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have an immediate or long-term harmful effect on the environment or its biological diversity, or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

Human health assessment

The health effects database for BDTP is limited, but chronic toxicity studies for selected analogues indicated no evidence of carcinogenicity in experimental animals, and the available data do not indicate genotoxic potential. Based on the collective information on BDTP and selected analogues, the primary health effect associated with exposure to BDTP is liver toxicity. However, exposure of the general population of Canada to BDTP through environmental media is expected to be minimal, and exposure from use of consumer products is not expected. Based on this, the risk to human health is considered to be low. It is concluded that BDTP does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA as it is not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Conclusion

It is concluded that BDTP does not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

Considerations for follow-up

Although currently no or limited potential for risk to the environment has been identified for BDTP in the ecological risk assessment, this substance is considered persistent and bioaccumulative; modelled toxicity data indicate potential hazards to wildlife organisms due to long-term exposure. Measured concentrations of BDTP in surface water and sediment in Canada were reported from a wastewater monitoring project. However, there are still substantial uncertainties due to the absence of data to (1) inform accurate quantitation of releases from industrial activities; and (2) address the concern associated with long-term exposure to aquatic organisms and birds and wildlife organisms.

Therefore, there may be concerns if import and use quantities were to increase in Canada. Such increases could result in additional releases and environmental exposure, resulting in environmental risk. Therefore, the substance will be added to the Domestic Substances List (DSL) Inventory Update to monitor changes in Canadian import, use and release. The substance may be subject to further ecological and human health assessment, if warranted by new information.

It is noted that there are a number of other phenolic benzotriazole compounds on the DSL. They are expected to possess analogous physical and chemical properties, behave similarly in the environment and demonstrate similar environmental fate and effects to organisms. This Screening Assessment does not reflect any potential for combined effects from BDTP and the other phenolic benzotriazoles; however, the importance of the additive exposure in the environment and the total effects may warrant further examination in a future substance grouping assessment.

The Screening Assessment for the substance is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).

ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment of Ethene

Pursuant to section 68 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of ethene (commonly referred to as “ethylene”), Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN) 74-85-1.

Ethene is a simple double-bonded hydrocarbon, and it is a ubiquitous gas in the environment. It is introduced into the environment from natural and anthropogenic sources, including emissions from vegetation of all types and microorganisms, as a product of incomplete combustion of organic material (such as wood and agricultural wastes) and of fossil fuels, and during its industrial production and use. Ethene is also produced endogenously by humans and mammals.

Ethene has been internationally identified as a high production volume (HPV) chemical. Worldwide, ethene is the petrochemical product manufactured in the largest quantity, with global production capacity in 2011 estimated to be 138 million tonnes per year. In 2011, Canada ranked sixth in worldwide ethene production capacity at nearly 5.5 million tonnes per year, representing 4.0% of worldwide capacity. In 2000, ethene production in Canada was slightly lower, with a production of 4.3 million tonnes per year, based on results from a survey conducted under section 71 of CEPA. In this same survey, imported quantities of ethene were comparatively negligible.

In Canada and worldwide, ethene is predominantly used as a monomer for the manufacture of polyethylene plastics, as an intermediate for other organic chemicals, and as fuel gas in industrial facilities. Relatively small amounts are also used in commercial settings worldwide for the controlled growth or ripening of vegetation such as fruits, vegetables and flowers; in Canada, ethene is used for the postharvest ripening of bananas and other tropical fruits, and degreening of citrus.

In Canada, anthropogenic ethene concentrations in air are mostly attributed to the combustion of fossil fuels and to the use of ethene in various industrial processes. Canadian automotive releases to air were estimated at 3 449 tonnes in 2005. The majority of this was estimated to be released from cars manufactured before 1992. Newer vehicles (after 1992) emit considerably less ethene due to advances in automotive engine technology and emissions controls as well as requirements for cleaner burning fuels in the United States and Canada.

Ethene is included in the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI), to which facilities manufacturing, processing, or otherwise using more than 10 tonnes per year of the substance must report their releases. In 2009, facilities across Canada reported to the NPRI on-site environmental releases totaling approximately 1 320 tonnes. Industrial releases have dropped by over 50% since 2000, due largely to the amount of ethene being recycled. The majority of reported ethene releases are to air.

Ethene has been measured in outdoor, indoor and personal air (i.e. air near a person’s breathing zone collected using mobile air sampling equipment carried by participants) in Canada, as well as in vegetation, soil and surface seawater. As a combustion by-product, ethene has been measured in vehicular exhaust and in cigarette smoke. Ethene has not been reported in drinking water or consumer products in Canada. Based on experimental and modelled data, ethene is neither persistent nor bioaccumulative in the environment.

Terrestrial plants are highly sensitive to ethene in air; critical toxicity values in air were determined for long-term and short-term exposures.

Air monitoring data were used to determine if ambient concentrations of ethene in urban and rural air or near industrial sites could be harmful to terrestrial plants. Based on the comparison of levels expected to cause harm to organisms with estimated exposure levels and on other information, ethene due to industrial emissions or ambient concentrations has a low risk of harm to terrestrial plants. The estimated frequency of occurrences of sufficient concentration from industrial emissions to be of concern is one occurrence per year.

Based on the information presented in this Screening Assessment, there is low risk of harm to organisms or the broader integrity of the environment from this substance. It is therefore concluded that ethene does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA as it is not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that have or may have immediate or long-term harmful effects on the environment or its biological diversity or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

Based principally on weight-of-evidence–based assessments of international agencies, ethene was not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans (Group 3) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has concluded that relevant studies on ethene have indicated low toxicity.

The animal database for ethene, as well as the available epidemiology studies, did not demonstrate a cancer concern, and the overall genotoxicity test results were negative. Based on observations in experimental animals, the critical human health effects associated with exposure to ethene are nasal effects. This critical effect level was compared to the highest concentration of ethene measured in air in Canada and resulted in wide margins of exposure that were considered adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases. On the basis of the adequacy of the margins between upper-bounding estimates of exposure to ethene and critical effect levels, it is concluded that ethene does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA as it is not entering the environment in a quantity or concentration or under conditions that constitute or may constitute a danger in Canada to human life or health.

Conclusion

It is concluded that ethene (CAS RN 74-85-1) does not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA.

The Screening Assessment for this substance is available on the Government of Canada’s Chemical Substances Web site (www.chemicalsubstances.gc.ca).
