The konsortium works on the following work packages (WPs)
Advantages and disadvantages of the many regulatory initiatives in Denmark, EU, OSPAR, HELCOM
How latest scientific knowledge can be used regulatory to reduce plastic pollution
How regulation and thus social development are affected by the actors
how this has resulted in a national plastic action plan
how the industry develops strategies and frameworks to limit plastic pollution
Danish actors in an international context
1. What is the magnitude of plastic pollution in Danish coastal and open waters and how much does the pollution vary between different areas?
2. Which are the most significant sources of plastic pollution in Danish coastal waters?
Investigates: How can analytical methods for quantification of plastic pollution be optimized, furthermore developed for nanoplastics?
Determines the number and polymer type
In addition also determine the particle mass and shape
We're going down
Investigates: How plastic degrades
Degradation of plastic in the marine environment
MarinePlastic addresses realistic degradation in the environment
Microplastic is absorbed in many places in the food chain
Which mechanisms do control the uptake, translocation and release of microplastic
Comparison of plastic when it is ‘freshly prepared’, broken down and biofilm greeted
