The current issue of the journal KW Korrespondenz Wasserwirtschaft (03/2021) focuses on plastics in the environment. The thematic issue contains articles from the collaborative projects PLASTRAT, RUSEKU, SubμTrack, MikroPlaTaS and PlastikBudget.
The articles present a range of topics from the research focus. In addition to reports on the status paper on microplastic analysis and the compendium on plastics in the environment, the issue also contains articles on the behaviour and analysis of microplastic particles in water and on the toxicity of plastics in limnic systems. The Citizen Science project "Plastic Pirates – Go Europe!" also has its place in the issue.
The publication is available through membership of the DWA.
