Description of key information

It is expected that soluble silicon is not toxic to micro-organisms at the tested solubility level of silicon/silica (KTH 2010).  At doses of 25 mg/l, soluble sodium silicate had no adverse effect on the biodegradation of easily degradable nutrients in a STP simulation test.  

Key value for chemical safety assessment
