Article service life
Release to the environment of 2-Diethylaminoethanol can occur from industrial use: of articles where the substances are not intended to be released and where the conditions of use do not promote release.
Other release to the environment of 2-Diethylaminoethanol is likely to occur from: outdoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. metal, wooden and plastic construction and building materials), outdoor use in long-life materials with high release rate (e.g. tyres, treated wooden products, treated textile and fabric, brake pads in trucks or cars, sanding of buildings (bridges, facades) or vehicles (ships)) and indoor use in long-life materials with low release rate (e.g. flooring, furniture, toys, construction materials, curtains, foot-wear, leather products, paper and cardboard products, electronic equipment).
2-Diethylaminoethanol can be found in products with material based on: stone, plaster, cement, glass or ceramic (e.g. dishes, pots/pans, food storage containers, construction and isolation material), paper used for packaging (excluding food packaging) and plastic used for packaging (excluding food packaging).
