Description of key information

Sodium acetate is considered as a readily biodegradable substance.

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Based on the experimental results of biodegrability obtained with Sodium acetate and Acetic acid ( both substances were readily biodegradable in the tests), read across approaches were applied, and Sodium diacetate is also considered as a biodegradable.
