Microplastics in the environment: characteristic, identification and potential risk

Aleksandra Bogusz, Partyk Oleszczuk

Abstract


Plastics are widely used in industry as well as in a daily lives. Large amounts of plastics debris are delivered into environment, especially into aqueous ecosystems and transformed into microplastics. The present work describes microplastics as the marine environment contaminants, their sources and also methods of their identification in the environment. Moreover, the ability of plastics to acculumation of organic and inorganic contaminants and possible harmful effect on the aquatic organisms is also discussed in presented work.


Keywords


marine environment, microplastics, plastic debris, influence on marine organisms
