Analysis techniques for quantifying nano-and microplastic particles and their degradation in the marine environment (ANDROMEDA)

In ANDROMEDA, a combination of advanced techniques, such as µFTIR, Raman and SEM-EDX, should be optimized and used for characterization and quantification of microplastics and nanoplastics in the order of 1 µm, 0.2 µm and less. Particular focus will be given to types of MP that are challenging to detect, such as microfibers, paint flakes and tire wear particles.

Project period: 2020 – 2023

Ongoing

Fluxes and fate of microplastics in Northern European waters (FACTS)

The project FACTS will create new knowledge and improve our understanding on the sources, transport, occurrence, and fate of small microplastics (MP) in the northern marine waters. FACTS will combine newest methods to describe transport and geographical sources of microplastics contamination. We will also investigate where microplastic particles will end up both in temperate waters of the southern North Sea and the Arctic waters of the Barents Sea.

Project period: 2020 – 2023

Ongoing

Plastic pollution; a global challenge towards harmonised understanding, education and methodology in Europe, USA and China (PlastPoll)

Being a fast developing field of research of increasing complexity, education on the impact and fate of MP pollution is lacking behind both in teaching, state-of-the art research as well […]
