Since calcium sulfate is an inorganic substance, it does not undergo
biodegradation i.e. microbial degradation to carbon dioxide and water,
since it doesn’t contain any carbon or hydrogen atoms in its chemical
formula. Calcium sulfate will therefore be degraded in the environment
by means other than biodegradation. The ions will dissociate; calcium
will be assimilated by species in the water and is necessary to maintain
a good chemical balance in soils, water and plants and the sulfate will
become part of the sulfur cycle or be assimilated by microorganisms and
other species that require sulfate as an essential substance in their
biological systems/ processes.
