Description of key information

No data are available on the toxicity to aquatic micro-organisms of charcoal produced by wood. However, there are some data available related to the effects on aquatic micro-organisms of the exposure to activated carbon which indicates that no significant trends in bacterial community structure were observed up to AC concentration of 20%.  Therefore, it can be concluded that the exposure to charcoal has no adverse effects on aquatic micro-organisms.
