various Cr(VI)-related aspects have been made by the South African ferrochrome industry. However, it is also evident that several areas of uncertainty still exist, which require further research in order to better quantify risks and enhance the efficacy of mitigating steps.

Chromium in Environment, Its Toxic Effect from Chromite

Jul 06, 2018 Chromium has long been recognized as a toxic, mutagenic and carcinogenic metal. It is toxic to microorganism, plants, animals and humans. Chromium exists in environment in two stable forms: Cr(VI) and Cr(III). Cr(III) is less toxic and insoluble, while Cr(VI) is extremely toxic and highly soluble. Chromium is used in many industrial applications, but it poses a threat to local environment.
