A key study is available that assesses the toxicity of the reaction mass
of calcium carbonate
and calcium dihydroxide and calcium peroxide to microorganisms. The
resulting 3h-EC50 is 170 mg/L, the 3h-NOEC is 30 mg/L.
The toxicity of the reaction mass of calcium carbonate and calcium
dihydroxide and calcium peroxide to microorganisms has been assessed in
a recent GLP activated sludge respiration inhibition study according to
OECD guideline 209 (Desmares-Koopmans, 2012).
In this reliable study, activated sludge of predominantly domestic
sewage were exposed to nominal concentrations of 10, 30, 100, 300 and
1000 mg/L for 3 hours. The initial pH of these test solutions was 7.3
(control) - 7.6 (10 mg/L) - 8.0 (30 mg/L) ) - 8.6 (100 mg/L) - 8.7 (300
mg/L) - 10.5 (1000 mg/L). A 3h-EC50 of 170 mg/L (confidence
intervals: 100-290) and a NOEC of 30 mg/L were calculated.
In a supporting study by Wang (2019), it was found that CaO2
caused - to some extent - inhibitions to all the tested
microbes. Its inhibition to hydrogen consumers was found to be much more
severe than that to hydrolytic microbes and hydrogen producers.
