Description of key information

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No data are available on toxicity to sediment dwelling organisms. The risks for these organisms are negligible according to Environment and Health Canada (Environment Canada and Health Canada, 2010), because the bioavailability of aluminum in sediment is low due to the high pH and the presence of ligands and DOM.
