A nitrification inhibition test with Zn sulfate on activated slugde originating from a municipal wastewater treatment plant was performed leading to a NOEC of 100 µg Zn/L.
Several data were available for this endpoint. Formerly (ECB 2008), and in the REACH-registrations of a number of zinc substances of November 2010, a PNEC of 52 µg/L for STP was derived, based on the lowest EC50 of 5.2 mg Zn/L observed in a sludge respiration inhibition test (Dutka et al. 1983). According to the guidance (ECHA 126.96.36.199) preference should be given to nitrification inhibition because respiration inhibition is a less sensitive endpoint. A study conducted by Juliastuti et al. (2003) reported a NOEC of 0.1 mg Zn/L in an ISO 9509 nitrification inhibition test. Applying the rules for PNEC setting (ECHA R.10, table R.10.6) this result yields a PNEC STP of 100 µg Zn/L (AF of 1).
