New Study on Microplastics in the Environment: Which Sources Are Relevant?



Scientific studies have shown that the litter found in oceans and inland waters is dominated by plastics. Besides large items such as plastic bottles and bags, the occurrence of microplastics has also been verified in water bodies, sediments and on the beaches of the world's oceans. These alarming results prompted the Federal Environment Agency to commission a study to produce a first approximation of the amounts of microplastics used in cosmetic products on the market in Germany and the European Union. The study is now available for free at www.bio-based.eu/ecology
