ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment Report on Acetone

Pursuant to section 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of acetone (Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number 67-64-1). Acetone was identified as a priority for assessment on the basis of “greatest potential” for human exposure.

Acetone has both natural and anthropogenic sources. It is produced by thermal combustion from, for example, forest fires; it is an oxidation product of natural humic substances; and it is excreted as a metabolic by-product from many organisms, including mammals, plants and microorganisms. Significant anthropogenic sources of acetone in air include chemical manufacturing, solvent use, petroleum production, automobile emissions, tobacco smoke, wood burning, pulping, refuse, plastics combustion and off-gassing from landfill sites. Anthropogenic sources of acetone emissions into the aquatic environment include wastewater discharges from industries and leaching from industrial and municipal landfills.

Acetone is used as a formulating solvent for a variety of paints, inks, resins, varnishes, lacquers, surface coatings, paint removers and automotive care products. The greatest applications of acetone globally are solvent uses and the production of methyl methacrylate and bisphenol A. In 2010, total global production of acetone was estimated to be 5.5 million tonnes.

In Canada, acetone is employed for a variety of uses, including use as an industrial and laboratory solvent, as a cleaner and degreaser, and in paints, dyes, adhesives and coatings. Acetone may be used in Canada in food, food packaging, pharmaceuticals, natural health products, veterinary drugs, cosmetics and pest control products.

Based on the results of a survey conducted under section 71 of CEPA 1999 for the year 2000, approximately 1 000 tonnes of acetone were manufactured in Canada as a by-product of industrial processes, and 15 000 tonnes of acetone were imported into Canada, at a concentration higher than 1%. However, a facility that accounted for 98% of Canadian acetone production in the year 2000 stopped manufacturing it in 2002.

Acetone was included in the National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) until 1998. In 1998, facilities across Canada reported on-site environmental releases totalling approximately 3 570 tonnes, mostly to air. Since 2009, facilities located in the province of Ontario have again been required to report acetone releases to the NPRI. In 2009, total releases of acetone in Ontario were 1 039 tonnes (mainly to air), compared to 1 379 tonnes in 1998.

Acetone has been measured in ambient and indoor air and drinking water in Canada, and in surface water, groundwater, food, and soil in the United States and elsewhere. Acetone has been identified in numerous products and building materials, as well as in cigarettes and tobacco smoke. Acetone is produced endogenously in the body and has been detected in the blood of individuals living in the United States.

Acetone has an estimated tropospheric half-life of 22 to 23 days and is predicted to be subject to long-range atmospheric transport (>5 000 km); therefore, it is persistent in air. It biodegrades in soil and water and is therefore not persistent in these media.

Acetone is not expected to bioaccumulate in organisms, based on empirical as well as modelled data. Based on empirical data, acetone at low concentrations is not hazardous to aquatic organisms, terrestrial plants or mammals.

Acetone is predicted to stay mainly in the environmental compartment in which it is released. This is especially true when acetone is released to water (>99% is predicted to remain in water).

For the ecological portion of this Screening Assessment, the predicted environmental concentrations in air and surface water did not exceed concentrations associated with effects, even when using very conservative scenarios.

Based on the information presented in this Screening Assessment, there is a low risk of harm to organisms and the broader integrity of the environment from this substance. It is concluded that acetone does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA 1999 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.

Consideration of the available information indicates that acetone is not likely to be genotoxic or carcinogenic. Critical health effects associated with repeated exposure to acetone are considered to be hematological changes and kidney effects. The general population of Canada is exposed daily to acetone from environmental media, food and acetone-containing products that are used frequently. The margins of exposure between critical effect levels and the upper-bounding total daily intake estimates are considered to be adequate to address uncertainties in the health effects and exposure databases.

No critical health effects were identified for the characterization of risk from acute exposure that is expected to occur from occasional, intermittent use of certain products containing acetone. Effects at exposure levels associated with such use were considered mild, transient and reversible in nature; therefore, they were not considered adverse.

Based on the information available, it is concluded that acetone does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA 1999 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 acetone does not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of CEPA 1999.

ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment Report on 1-Propene

Pursuant to section 74 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of 1-Propene, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN) 115-07-1. 1-Propene (henceforth referred to as propene) was identified as a priority for screening assessment as it was considered to pose the “greatest potential” for exposure of individuals in Canada and was considered to pose a moderate hazard to human health.

Propene is a naturally occurring gas that is emitted from many plants, and it is a component in natural gas, volcanoes, and incomplete biomass combustion. Propene is primarily used as a monomer for the production of polypropylene, a plastic. It can also serve as an intermediate to make many other plastics, as a fuel additive, as a fragrance or as a perfume ingredient. Based on submissions made under section 71 of CEPA 1999, companies reported manufacturing a total of 930 000 tonnes of propene in Canada in 2000, mostly by the petrochemical industry. During the same year, over 10 000 tonnes of propene were reported as imported into Canada.

The National Pollutant Release Inventory reported that in 2009, a total of 404 tonnes of propene were released in Canada. There is an overall declining trend in reported releases from 1994 to 2009, due in part to closures of several chemical manufacturing facilities in 2008 and 2009.

Automobiles manufactured prior to 1992 are estimated to be a major source of propene in air. In 2005, these automobiles constituted 14% of all Canadian light-duty vehicles on the road, but they contributed 76% of all propene releases from these vehicles. However, the amount of all volatile organic compounds, including propene, released by automobiles has been declining due to improved efficiency of automotive engines and the continual removal of older vehicles from usage.

Propene has been detected in outdoor, indoor and personal air. It has not been reported in surface water, drinking water, soil, sediment, consumer products or foodstuffs in Canada. Propene has been identified as a combustion by-product in cigarette smoke.

Based on its physical and chemical properties and modelled data, propene is not persistent or bioaccumulative. Propene does not appear to cause harmful effects to terrestrial plants or small mammals even when they are exposed to very high concentrations in air. No studies have been found on the potential effects of propene on aquatic organisms.

Releases of propene to the environment occur almost exclusively to air. Based on a conservative risk quotient analysis, concentrations of propene in air in Canada are not expected to cause harmful effects to small mammals and terrestrial plants.

Based on the information presented in this screening assessment, there is a low risk of harm to organisms or the broader integrity of the environment from this substance. It is concluded that this substance does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or 64(b) of CEPA 1999, 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.

Propene has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer as “not classifiable as to its carcinogenicity to humans (Group 3)” on the basis of inadequate evidence of carcinogenicity. The animal and human health effects database for propene did not indicate evidence of carcinogenicity, and the available information on genotoxicity indicates that propene is not likely to be genotoxic. With respect to non-cancer effects, the lowest observed adverse effect concentration for chronic exposure was 5 000 ppm (8 600 mg/m3), based on the significantly increased incidence of squamous metaplasia and inflammation in the nasal cavities of rats exposed for two years. Margins of exposure between effect levels and upper-bounding estimates of exposure are considered adequate to address uncertainties related to health effects and exposure.

On the basis of the adequacy of the margins between the upper-bounding estimates of exposure and the critical effect level for chronic exposure, it is concluded that propene does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA 1999, 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 1-Propene does not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.

ANNEX

Summary of the Screening Assessment Report on 1,1′-Biphenyl

Pursuant to section 68 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999 (CEPA 1999), the Minister of the Environment and the Minister of Health have conducted a screening assessment of 1,1′-Biphenyl, Chemical Abstracts Service Registry Number (CAS RN) 92-52-4. 1,1′-Biphenyl (henceforth referred to as biphenyl) had been identified as a priority for assessment based on human health concerns.

Results from a survey conducted under the authority of section 71 of CEPA 1999 for the year 2000 indicate that biphenyl was not manufactured in Canada, although 10 000 to 100 000 kg of biphenyl were imported into Canada. In Canada, biphenyl is mainly used in the chemical industry as an intermediate in the production of heat transfer fluids. Based on information presented in the available scientific and technical literature, biphenyl has also been used as a dye carrier for textiles, in copying paper, as a solvent in chemical and petrochemical industries and as a fungistat in packaging for citrus fruits. Also, biphenyl has been detected in coal tar–derived creosotes, which have a wide application in wood preservation. Until the mid-1970s, biphenyl was used principally as an intermediate in the production of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCBs); however, this use no longer exists because of the prohibition of the manufacture of PCBs.

Biphenyl occurs from both natural and anthropogenic sources. Biphenyl is found naturally in coal tar, crude oil and natural gas. The primary anthropogenic sources are incomplete combustion of biomass, coal, mineral oil and fossil fuels, as well as incinerators and the burning of agricultural waste. Other emission sources include motor vehicle exhaust, residential and industrial heating devices, and cigarette smoke.

Biphenyl is expected to be found throughout Canada given its numerous natural and anthropogenic sources. Industrial uses of biphenyl could result in releases to surface waters. Biphenyl is not routinely monitored by Canadian provincial or federal regulatory agencies. Water concentrations have been measured, primarily from municipal drinking water supplies. No reports were found that presented data on the concentration of biphenyl in Canadian soil. Biphenyl was measured in sediment samples collected between the early 1980s and 1990. To supplement these limited older data, environmental concentrations in air, water, and soil were estimated based on National Pollutant Release Inventory data for 2008.

Based on experimental and modelled data, biphenyl is not considered to be persistent in air, water, or soil, but it is somewhat persistent in sediment. Biphenyl has a moderate potential to bioaccumulate in aquatic organisms. Based on experimental acute and chronic toxicity studies on aquatic and terrestrial species at different trophic levels, biphenyl has the potential to harm aquatic organisms at low concentrations. However, the results of conservative risk quotient (RQ) analyses indicate that predicted biphenyl concentrations near sources of exposure are unlikely to pose a risk to aquatic organisms. Similarly, a conservative RQ analysis of soil indicates that biphenyl is unlikely to pose a risk to soil-dwelling organisms in Canada.

Based on the information presented in this Screening Assessment, there is a low risk of harm to organisms or the broader integrity of the environment from this substance. It is concluded that biphenyl does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(a) or (b) of CEPA 1999, 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 effect on the environment or its biological diversity or that constitute or may constitute a danger to the environment on which life depends.

The general population exposure to biphenyl from environmental media and food is estimated to be low. Exposure from consumer products is not expected to be of concern.

Long-term dietary exposure to biphenyl has been reported to cause tumours of the urinary bladder in male rats and hepatocellular adenoma or carcinoma in female mice. The critical non-cancer effects for biphenyl include histopathological changes in the urinary bladder and/or kidney in rats or mice. Investigations of the genotoxicity potential of biphenyl in several in vivo and in vitro studies have provided mixed results.

Available information indicates that long-term high-dose exposure to biphenyl causes the induction of bladder tumours in male rats by a non-genotoxic mechanism or mechanical irritation secondary to the formation of bladder calculi. Similarly, biphenyl-induced hepatocarcinogenicity in female mice has been attributed to the induction of peroxisome proliferation, which also reflects a nongenotoxic mechanism and may not be a relevant mode of action for humans.

The margins of exposure between critical effect levels and the upper-bounding total daily intake estimates are considered to be adequate to address uncertainties related to health effects and exposure.

Based on the information available, it is concluded that biphenyl does not meet the criteria under paragraph 64(c) of CEPA 1999, 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 1,1′-Biphenyl does not meet any of the criteria set out in section 64 of the Canadian Environmental Protection Act, 1999.
