Additional information

Due to the inorganic character of the substance and the absence of chemical groups susceptible to hydrolysis biodegradation is not a concern. Elemental sulphur which is partially leached out by water and dissociates forming HS, HSO4and SO4=the species that predominate in the environment that might be found in nature. However, the elemental content of sulphur in the ferronickel slag is not significant (maximum 0,6 w/w %) therefore is not expected pH contribution to the local environment from the sulphur ions, which are integrated into the various mineral species present in the environment.
