the study does not need to be conducted because the substance is readily biodegradable

Description of key information

An experimental study is not necessary, as lactic acid is readily biodegradable, see section 5.2.1 of the present documentation. Moreover, lactic acid is actively produced (and metabolized) by a multitude of soil (micro)organisms.

Key value for chemical safety assessment
