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.

WP 2:

Analytical

methods

This work package aims to develop robust, fast and reliable methods to quantify plastic particles’ size, shape and mass. It produces the analytical tools needed for the other WPs.

Leader: AAU

SYNERGIES WITH OTHER WPS
