Microplastics – North Atlantic Microplastic Research Centre Established

According to a May 23, 2020 Norwegian Research Centre (NORCE) News Release https://www.norceresearch.no/en/news/norce-establishes-an-international-research-centre-on-microplastics “… Invisible microplastics are everywhere - in the air you breathe, the water you drink and in the food you eat. Microplastics are a growing problem, but still we do not know much about the environmental levels (amounts) and the consequences of exposure. This is to be researched by NORCE's newly established microplastics centre … [which] aims to bring together internationally leading researchers to, as quickly as possible, increase competence levels and gain a better understanding of the quantities and risks of microplastics …” #Microplastics #SingleUsePlastic ##PlasticWaste # NORCE
