What are Microplastics?
Microplastics are considered plastic particles 5mm (5000 microns) in size or less. Plastic particles are in wide use in industries such as cosmetics, ion-exchangers in some water filtration systems, air blasting technology, tires, etc. Microplastics are divided into two classes: Primary microplastics are in their original form, and secondary microplastics are smaller pieces derived from breakdown of primary microplastics. Microplastics have a very long degradation process that contributes to buildup in the environment.
Are there health concerns with Microplastics?
