Additional information

Based on chemical and physical properties of the substance a transport and distribution effect within the environment is highly unlikely.

Slags, Ferronickel-manufg. is a UVCB, inorganic, solid substance that is known to consist of a number of metal oxides, and more specifically of iron, silicon, calcium, magnesium, chromium(III) and aluminium, as well as of traces of Nickel metal. Ferronickel slags have no functional groups that would suggest the ability to adsorb to solid surfaces. Due to its physical-chemical properties (no relevant functional groups for adsorption), ferronickel slags are unlikely to show adsorption/desorption behavior
