Available Project

  • Can marine derived plastic litter be used in water remediation?

There is growing concern regarding the state of the oceans due to marine litter. It is estimated that over 5 trillion pieces of plastic are floating on the surface of the global oceans (Erikson et al. 2014), whilst up to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic waste enters the seas each year (Jambeck et al. 2015). In the environment plastic debris does not biodegrade but results in the proliferation of microplastic (particles < 5mm) which may be consumed by marine species, and also act as a sorbent for chemicals that pose a further problem to wildlife.
