Description of key information

Biodegradation in water: screening tests: Key studies: Calcium acetate is readily biodegradable (read-across from the category member Sodium acetate).

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Biodegradation in water:
readily biodegradable

Additional information

Key studies:

Based on the experimental results obtained with the analogue Sodium acetate, which is considered to be readily biodegradable (> 99% in 28 days), and applying the read-across approach, the substance Calcium Acetate is also considered to be readily biodegradable.
