SCOPE OF WORK PACKAGE 2
The scope of WP 2 is to improve existing methods and develop new ones to quantify micro- and nanoplastics. It is furthermore a goal that all methods are reliable and verifiable.
SYNERGIES WITH OTHER WPS
WP 2 produces the analytical tools needed for the other WPs.
How can analytical methods for quantification of plastic pollution be optimized?
Lowering detection limits in terms of particle sizes
Improved sample preparation techniques
Streamline interpretation of FTIR images
Validate simple screening methods
How can analytical methods for nanoplastics be developed?
Develop sample preparation methods for quantifying microplastics in the in the low- to sub-micron size range
Develop HC/EGA GC-MS analysis techniques to quantify plastic mass in the in the low- to sub-micron size range
