Plastic in Agricultural Production: Impacts, Lifecycles and LONg-term Sustainability

Project description

Life cycle and impacts of agricultural plastics

The EU-funded PAPILLONS project will investigate the sustainability of agricultural plastics (AP) in relation to releases and impacts of microplastics and nanoplastics (MNP) in European soils. The initiative will promote knowledge on sources, behaviour and impacts through cross-disciplinary research, bringing together experts from chemistry, materials engineering, agronomy, soil ecology, toxicology and social sciences. PAPILLONS will transform the knowledge generated into guidance for policy-makers, the agricultural sector and world-class industries to promote sustainable farm production systems. Researchers will deliver the first digital European atlas of AP use, management and waste production to estimate sources of MNP in agricultural soils and integrate studies at laboratory, mesocosm and field scales in different parts of Europe.
