Environmental impact of nanoplastics from fragmentized consumer plastics

Project: ResearchInterdisciplinary research


This project aims to fill existing knowledge gaps regarding the production of nano-sized plastic particles during the breakdown of larger plastic material in the aquatic environment and handling of plastic waste. The project will also describe the environmental impact of these naturally occurring nanoplastics and evaluate the usefulness of commercially available model nanoplastics for standardized testing.
