    In which

    "Lactate is the end product of anaerobic metabolism, in which 90% is cleared by liver and 10% is by kidney."

    Is the use of "in which" correct?

    Thank you

    The 'in' shouldn't be there.
    And I thought 'lactate'(to produce milk) is a verb, not a noun.
    If I remember correctly from my biology, it is lactic acid which is produced.

    What I think,
    90% is cleared by liver and 10% is by kidney in the end product of anaerobic metabolism. So when we make noun form, that is-
    the end product of anaerobic metabolism in which 90% is cleared by liver and 10 % is by kidney
