Sodium lactate fully dissociates into Na+
ions and lactate in aqueous environments. The biodegradation of Sodium
lactate in the environment can be understood in terms of the
biodegradation of lactic acid and since studies for sodium has been
waived because it is an inorganic substance.
Based on a key study for biodegradability
and a supporting study investigating the biochemical oxygen demand
(BOD), lactic acid is considered to be readily biodegradable, and
therefore Sodium lactate is considered to be readily biodegradable as
well. Accordingly, further degradation tests (in surface water,
sediment, or soil) are not required.
