The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA, and it now contains all REACH registration data. There are more details on the transition of ECHA's published data to ECHA CHEM here.

Description of key information

The water solubility of P-slag was studied using the dissolution/transformation protocol (OECD 29). Fluor and Silicium ions are present in solution in a concentration up to 1 mg/l. Fe, Al and Mn are below the detection levels in all cases. 

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

Due to the low solubility in water the dissolution/transformation protocol was used to further evaluate the solubility of the constituents of P-slag. If the cristalline structure of P-slag would solve in water, the elements would be present as ions in solution.

Particles of P-slag (< 1mm) were added to a synthetic medium with pH 6.5 and 8.5 at loading rates of 1, 10 and 100 mg/liter and the concentrations were measured after 7 days. In a similar way 1 mg/l was added to water with pH 5.5 and 8.5 and concentrations were measured after 28 days.

In the solution containing 100 mg P-slag per liter, Si is the element detected at the highest level, around maximum 1 mg/l. Fluor is detected as well, at concentrations maximum circa 0.5 mg/l. With pH 8.5 the solved concentrations are almost half of the concentrations at pH 6.5. In the lower P-slag loading, Si and F concentrations were below detection levels.

Concentrations of other elements were below the detection level (Fe < 0.25 mg/l, Al < 0.05 mg/l, Mn < 0.01 mg/l) in all P-slag loadings.
