Description of key information

Based on low availability of bismuth in aquatic media, toxicity to aquatic organisms is unlikely to occur and therefore acute toxicity to algae, invertebrates and fish and toxicity to microorganisms are waived.

Additional information

There are no data available on toxicity to algae, invertebrates or fish for the substance. The substance is highly insoluble in test media at pH 6 and pH 8 (Martinez 2016a). Considering the low availability of bismuth silicate in test media, toxicity to aquatic organisms is unlikely to occur and therefore acute toxicity to algae, invertebrates and fish and toxicity to microorganisms are waived.
