The study of the hottest microplastics pollution i

  • Detail

The research on microplastics pollution is still in the primary stage

the rest of the time is invalid. "At present, the global understanding of the sources, transportation routes and ecological environmental effects of marine plastic waste and microplastics is insufficient, the research methods are not unified and standardized, and the research on marine microplastics is still in the primary stage." On July 8, Professor lidaoji, director of the marine plastics research center of East China Normal University, said at the marine micro plastics seminar of the 2018 annual meeting of the Guiyang International Forum on ecological civilization

"October 16

" so far, China's marine microplastics related research has covered all aspects of possible research fields, including microplastics abundance in various habitats, analytical methods, bioaccumulation, toxic effects, microbial degradation, and pollution control and management of microplastics. " Lidaoji said, however, at present, the global understanding of the source, transportation path, fate and eco-environmental effects of marine plastic waste and micro plastics is still seriously insufficient, the research methods have not been unified and standardized, and the research efforts and measures to deal with this new marine environmental threat are quite different in different regions of the world

at present, countries and regions such as Europe, America, Japan, South Korea and China pay the most attention to the issue of marine micro plastics in the world, but generally speaking, the research is still in the primary stage. Although the research shows that micro plastics can enter human body through aquatic products, its health risk has not been confirmed

lidaoji called for extensive international cooperation on a global scale. Specifically, it includes: establishing a global unified monitoring, analysis and identification method for marine micro plastics research, and studying and determining the plastic waste and micro plastic flux of global rivers and riparian systems; Carry out in-depth research on the investigation, transportation and life cycle of marine micro plastics from river to river in order to ensure a good automotive interior environment, deep sea, polar, etc; Pay attention to the study on the toxicological effects of marine microplastics at different environmental concentrations, and evaluate the risks and impacts of microplastics on marine ecosystems and human health
