    Textile microplastics
    Every year, up to 500,000 tons of microplastic fibers end up in the sea. Fiber fragments are also released from synthetic textiles during the production of textiles as well as through use and washing. If these are not effectively removed by downstream cleaning processes, they enter rivers, inland waters and oceans via wastewater. In this presentation, the most common methods will be compared to identify and, if necessary, assess fibrous microplastics. What are the problems in the methods? What is the current status in standardization?
