Impact of Nanoplastics Pollution on aquatic and atmospheric Environments

Project description

Uncovering the cost of plastic pollution

When it comes to environmental protection, one of the greatest concerns is plastic pollution. Plastics have made their way to the most remote regions of our planet, polluting even the air we breathe. As plastics degrade, they can produce tiny particles called nanoplastics. The EU-funded NaPuE project will investigate the presence of nanoplastics and how they affect different environments. Moreover, it will explain how they disrupt various natural processes and how their effects vary compared to larger plastics. The ultimate goal is to better assess the environmental impact of nanoplastics while helping to develop strategies to safeguard against pollution.
