EC number: 294-409-3
CAS number: 91722-09-7
Substance formed during processing of liquid steel or during production of iron castings. Consists primarily of fused silicates and trace elements as oxides as well as trace of alloying elements.
ABS: Eisenia fetida OECD 207: 14 d-LC0 = 100 g/kg (highest concentration tested)ABS: Eisenia fetida ISO 11268-1: 14 d-LC50 = 770 g/kg (highest concentration tested)
In an earthworm acute toxicity test performed according to OECD 207 and
GLP, powdered air-cooled blast furnace slag (ABS) did not affect
survival or body fresh weight of the earthworm Eisenia fetida during 2
weeks incubation in soil with a maximum concentration of 100 g of the
slag per kg of artificial OECD soil (highest concentration tested, NERI
The effects of slags on earthworms were measured in a 14 d test
according to ISO 11268-1 (Effects of Pollutants on Earthworms. 1.
Determination of Acute Toxicity Using Artificial Soil Substrate). ABS
was not toxic against Eisenia fetida within 14 days. The LC50 was 770
g/kg (highest concentration tested, LECES 1999).
