Additional information

Ferrous slags are inorganic UVCB similar to natural rock. These materials contain trace elements of toxicological or environmental relevance. The accumulation of these elements was tested in field studies. For several elements tested, there was a high scattering of their concentrations in animals and algae, but it could not be shown that a significant accumulation of these trace elements occurred.
