Acute aquatic toxicity of kerosines report on Concawe test programme

21 May 1996

This report describes the experimental procedures and the results obtained in acute ecotoxicity tests on three kerosine samples. The samples were tested for toxicity to the rainbow trout, Oncorhynchus mykiss, the crustacean zooplankter, Daphnia magna and the alga, Selenastrum capricornutum using water accommodated fractions. These results assist in determining the environmental hazard from kerosines.
