I'm wondering approximately how fast and to which extent $\ce{NaHCO3}$ will decompose (to $\ce{CO2}$ and $\ce{H2O}$) at $50$, $60$, $70$, $80$, $90$, $100$, $110$, $120$, and $\pu{130 ^\circ C}$.

It seems as if J. Environ. Sci. 2019, 78, 74–80 would answer my question but unfortunately I can't access the content.

Does anyone know ?

    $\begingroup$ If you notice it says "thermodynamics" and not "kinetics" . kinetics decides the speed whereas thermodynamics discusses the feasibilty. $\endgroup$ – Safdar Sep 26 '20 at 9:14

The paper doesn't tell how fast will it be.

As for the rest, have this:

    $\begingroup$ This doesn't seem to be an answer to the actual answer more a comment with images. Wouldn't it be better to link it to an answer in the sandbox? $\endgroup$ – Safdar Sep 26 '20 at 9:09
  • $\begingroup$ True, but you can't include images in comments, and using the sandbox to this end seems somehow far-fetched. $\endgroup$ – Ivan Neretin Sep 26 '20 at 9:42
