Description of key information

Additional information

Sodium lactate fully dissociates into Na+ ions and lactate. The ecotoxicology of sodium lactate can be understood in terms of the ecotoxicology of lactic acid.

Lactic acid is readily biodegradable (see 5.2.1) and is a ubiquitous and essential molecule of life. It will not adsorb to soil (see 5.4.1). As such there is no relevance in the hazard assessment for terrestrial organisms.
