'New tailor-made biopolymers produced from lignocellulosic sugars waste for highly demanding fire-resistant applications'

EVENT
MICROPLASTIC IN THE ENVIRONMENT - SOURCES, IMPACTS & SOLUTIONS

Scientific studies have shown that plastics greatly contribute to the littering of oceans. In marine protection, plastic particles with a diameter smaller than 5 mm are referred to as microplastics. These can be secondary fragments created by the breaking up of larger pieces of plastic such as packaging materials, or fibres that are washed out of textiles. They can also be primary plastic particles produced in microscopic sizes IWC Replica Watches. These include granulates used in cosmetics and in other applications.


The microplastic conference will:


Identify sources of microplastics and quantify the amount ending up in nature
Reveal impacts on marine ecosystems and human beings
Propose solutions for current problems, such as prevention, recycling and substitution with biodegradable plastics & other materials
The event will provide plenty of scope for discussion between producers, consumers, scientists, Cheap IWC Replica environmental organisations, governmental agencies and other interested stakeholders.
