A new study commissioned by Seas at Risk VzW titled, “Microplastics in the marine environment: sources, impacts and recommendations”, was compiled by GMIT Microplastic Researchers (Dr João Frias, Dr Róisín Nash, Dr Elena Pagter, Sindhura Stothra Bhashyam, MSc) together with Malcolm Deegan from Maldeegan Productions, in Dublin.
The publication of this report coincides with the commencement of European Green Week 2021, whose focus is on Zero pollution for healthier people and the planet. The report highlights the current state-of-the-art on microplastic sources and pathways within the marine environment in Europe. The aim of the report is to provide useful information for decision-makers, stakeholders, researchers, and the general public.
The report is available at GMIT’s Research@THEA repository on:
