2-(2-Methoxyethoxy)ethanol (DEGME)

The Health Council of the Netherlands reviewed 2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethanol (DEGME). DEGME is primarily used as an intermediate or industrial processing aid and an additive in aviation fuels. People occupationally exposed to the substance can subsequently suffer from adverse health effects. This report is part of a series, in which the Health Council evaluates the effects of substances on reproduction, at the request of the Minister of Social Affairs and Employment.
