Detaljerad miljöinformation

PEC/PNEC = 0.0062 μg/L /120 μg/L = 0.000052

PEC/PNEC = ≤ 0.1

Environmental Risk Classification

Predicted Environmental Concentration (PEC)

The PEC is based on following data:

PEC (µg/L) = (A*109*(100-R))/(365*P*V*D*100)

PEC (µg/L) = 1.5*10-6*A*(100-R)

A (kg/year) = total sold amount API in Sweden year 2017, data from IQVIA (former IMS Health and Quintiles).

R (%) = removal rate (due to loss by adsorption to sludge particles, by volatilization, hydrolysis or biodegradation) = 0 if no data is available.

P = number of inhabitants in Sweden = 9 *106

V (L/day) = volume of wastewater per capita and day = 200 (ECHA default) (Ref. 1)

D = factor for dilution of waste water by surface water flow = 10 (ECHA default) (Ref. 1)

(Note: The factor 109 converts the quantity used from kg to μg).

A = 41.3 kg

R = 0

PEC = 1.5 * 10-6 * 41.3 * (100-0) = 0.0062 µg/L


Lisinopril dihydrate is not metabolised in the body, with virtually 100% excreted via urine as the parent drug (Ref. 2).

PNEC (Predicted No Effect Concentration)

Short-term tests have been undertaken for species from three trophic levels, based on internationally accepted guidelines. Therefore, the PNEC is based on the acute toxicity (E/LC50) to the giant water flea (Daphnia magna) and the green alga (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) studies, as the species with the lowest NOECs, and an assessment factor of 1000 is applied, in accordance with ECHA guidance (Ref. 9).

PNEC = 120 000/1000 µg/L = 120 µg/L

Environmental risk classification (PEC/PNEC ratio)

PEC/PNEC = 0.0062 μg/L /120 μg/L =0.000052, i.e PEC/PNEC = ≤0.1 which justifies the phrase "Use of lisinopril dihydrate has been considered to result in insignificant environmental risk."

In Swedish: "Användning av lisinoprildihydrat har bedömts medföra försumbar risk för miljöpåverkan.” under the heading ”Miljörisk”.

Biotic degradation

Lisinopril dihydrate is not readily biodegradable in accordance to the OECD 301C (Ref. 11), with 0% biodegradation after 28 days. Based on this information (considering that no other data is available) the substance has been assigned the risk phrase: "Lisinopril dihydrate is potentially persistent."

In Swedish: “Lisinoprildihydrat är potentiellt persistent.” under the heading “Nedbrytning”.


Since Log P < 4 the phrase "Lisinopril dihydrate has low potential for bioaccumulation” is assigned.

In Swedish: ”Lisinoprildihydrat har låg potential att bioackumuleras.” under the heading “Bioackumulering”.
