Detaljerad miljöinformation

1. PREDICTED ENVIRONMENTAL CONCENTRATION (PEC):


The Predicted Environmental Concentration is calculated according to the following formula:


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


Where:

A (kg/year)

=

9.04202054 kg (total sold amount API in the most recent sales data for Sweden (2019) was distributed by IQVIA/LIF in 2020)

R (%)

=

removal rate (due to loss by adsorption to sludge particles, by volatilization, hydrolysis or biodegradation)

 

=

0% (worst-case scenario: no removal)

P

=

number of inhabitants in Sweden (9 x 106)

V (L/day)

=

volume of waste water per capita and day

 

=

200 (ECHA default) [6]

D

=

factor for dilution of waste water by surface water flow

 

=

10 (ECHA default) [6]

PEC (µg/L)

=

0.001376259 µg/L


2. PREDICTED NO EFFECT CONCENTRATION (PNEC)

2.1. Ecotoxicological studies

2.1.1. Algae

Green algae (Pseudokirchneriella subcapitata) (OECD 201) [1]:

EbC50 (biomass) 72 h = 7.6 mg/L

NOECb (biomass) = 1.6 mg/L

ErC50 72 h (growth rate) = 15.1 mg/L

NOECr (growth rate) = 5.0 mg/L


2.1.2. Crustacean

Acute

Water-flea (Daphnia magna) (OECD 202) [2]:

EC50 48 h (immobilization) = 12.3 mg fentanyl HCl/L ≈ 11.1 mg fentanyl/L


Chronic

Not available


2.1.3. Fish

Acute

Zebra fish (Brachydanio rerio) (OECD 203) [3]:

LC50 96 h (Survival) = 24.0 mg/L

NOEC (Survival) = 5.0 mg/L


Chronic

Not available


2.1.4. Other ecotoxicity data

Activated sludge respiration inhibition test Microorganisms (OECD 209) [4]:

EC50 3 h > 80 mg/L

NOEC ≥ 80 mg/L


2.2. Calculation of Predicted No Effect Concentration (PNEC)

PNEC (µg/L) = lowest EC50/1000, where 1000 is the assessment factor used. EC50 for Daphnia magna 11.1 mg/L has been used for this calculation since it is the most sensitive of the three tested species. As for the algae species, the growth rate endpoint has been chosen in favor of that of the algae biomass in the determination of the PNEC. According to the OECD 201 guideline, preference should be given to the growth rate endpoint.


PNEC = 11.1 mg/L/1000 = 11.1 µg/L


2.3. Environmental risk classification (PEC/PNEC ratio)

PEC/PNEC = 0.001376259/11.1 = 0.000123987 i.e. PEC/PNEC ≤ 0.1


Since PEC/PNEC ≤ 0.1, Fentanyl has been considered to result in insignificant environmental risk.


Conclusion for environmental risk:

Use of Fentanyl has been considered to result in insignificant environmental risk.


3. DEGRADATION

3.1. Biotic degradation

3.1.1. Ready biodegradation

Fentanyl is not readily biodegradable in a biodegradability test according to OECD No. 301 F: “Manometric respirometry test”. [5]


Within the given test period of 28 days and at the given test conditions fentanyl HCl cannot be regards as readily biodegradable. Consequently, the medicine is potentially persistent.


Conclusion for degradation:

Fentanyl is potentially persistent.


4. BIOACCUMULATION

4.1 Partition coefficient octanol/water

The partition coefficient octanol/water was to be log Kow = 3.94 (pH = 3) using unknown internal method. The ChemSpider ACD/Percepta log Kow for Fentanyl = 3.89. The substance therefore has low potential for bioaccumulation. [7]


Conclusion for bioaccumulation:

Fentanyl has low potential for bioaccumulation.


5. PBT-ASSESSMENT


PBT-criteria

Results for Fentanyl

P

DT50 freshwater > 40 days or

DT50 sediment > 120 days

-

B

BCF > 2000

-

T

Chronic NOEC < 0.01 mg/L or

CMR or endocrine disrupting

NOECalgae = 5 mg/L

NOECfish = 5 mg/L

The PBT-criteria are not fulfilled. Therefore, Fentanyl is not considered a PBT-substance.
