Cellulose diacetate (CDA) and calcium carbonate ($CaCO_3$) biodegradable composites were prepared by melt mixing in a twin screw extruder and their physical properties were examined. In the melt processing, triacetine and epoxidized soybean oil were added to the composites as a plasticizer and lubricant, respectively. The optimal conditions for the preparation of the biodegradable composites were determined. Acetic acids ($CH_3COOH$) were made by pyrolysis acetyl group ($-OC (O)CH_3$) of CDA and TA in melt processing. Increasing the amount of $CaCO_3$ in the composites resulted in further enhancement of the $CH_3COOH$ absorption effects. The tensile strength and elongation were decreased, and Young's modulus and $T_g$ value increased with increasing amount of $CaCO_3$.
