VIDEO Q&A: A Macro View at Microplastics in Water

Microplastics are widespread in the environment and could potentially have a harmful impact on human and environmental health. There are many efforts currently underway to identify and study these pollutants. To better understand the concerns, challenges, and current research, we spoke with Professor Pennie Lindeque, the Head of Science for Marine Ecology and Biodiversity at the Plymouth Marine Laboratory, UK.

Microplastics Are On the Menu

Microplastics are widespread in the environment and may potentially have an impact on human and environmental health. One way this can happen is through their movement up the food chain, ultimately impacting humans through the consumption of fish, mussels and other seafoods.

Video Q&A: Regulating Microplastics, Mitigating Macro Risks

We spoke with Dr. Scott Coffin, a research scientist at the California State Water Resources Control Board, to learn more about California’s intention to require microplastics testing in drinking water. Dr. Coffin provided insights into the specific regulations, how they will be implemented and what types of testing will be required.
