Ecologic Institute 2021: Plastics in the Environment – Sources • Sinks • Solutions. Video. Online: https://youtu.be/HlPZ8AMq448

Plastic waste, plastic parts and microplastics can be found everywhere in the environment. Plastic particles are also detected in living organisms. But what exactly is the situation? To find out, the German Ministry of Research is funding the research priority "Plastics in the Environment" with around 40 million euros. Some of the results of the 20 funded research projects are presented in this video. Further results of the research projects as well as information on the activities of the research focus are available on the website.

Ecologic Institute took over the concept as well as the production of the video, which was shown during the German Week of the Environment in 2021.
