Microplastics = TOO LATE !
- The primary microplastics :
Directly produced as microparticles.
0.95 Million tonnes are produced every year such as :
270 000 tonnes come from the erosion of tyres
230 000 come from plastic pellets
190 000 tonnes come from textile and are liberated in washing-machines by synthetic clothes.
- The Secondary microplastics :
Produced by fragmentation of macroplastics.
The fragmentation of marine plastics is an important part of the input.
This is where we can act ... before macroplastics disagregate into microplastics !
