Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

No toxicity data for aquatic microorganisms are available for GTL Kerosine. However, an Activated Sludge Respiration Inhibition test is available for the related substance GTL Gasoil (Clarke, 2009). GTL Diesel had no inhibitory effect upon activated sludge in a test conducted in accordance with OECD 209 and GLP. The 3-hr EC50was greater than 1000 mg/l; NOEC = 1000 mg/l.
