According to a December 4, 2020 Nipawin Journal story, Jim Luong is a Dow scientist who was named to the Analytical Scientist’s 100 Power List for the second consecutive year and is the co-leader of Dow’s Gas Chromatography Centre of Expertise – “… Most recently, Luong has been involved in the Plastics Research in Action research project collaboration … [with others] to measure and monitor microplastics in water and sediments with the potential to develop protocols for the sampling, preparation, and characterization of microplastics in aquatic environments. That research initiative … focuses on identifying opportunities for society to reuse and recycle plastic waste …” – The web link to the story is included in the post on the home page of Plastic Food Packaging Waste News at https://pfpw.news/2020/12/06/microplastics-presence-in-water-and-sediments-studied/ #Mircoplastics #PlasticWaste #SingleUsePlastic #DOW
