Plastics in the Environment – Sources • Sinks • Solutions" (PlastikNet) – Fact sheet series
Fact sheet series of the BMBF research focus "Plastics in the Environment – Sources • Sinks • Solutions", 2021-2022.
In the framework of the scientific accompanying research (PlastikNet) of the research focus "Plastics in the Environment – Sources • Sinks • Solutions" (Plastik in der Umwelt – Quellen • Senken • Lösungsansätze) Ecologic Institute coordinates 20 joint research projects, which deal with plastics in the environment funded by the Federal Ministry for Education and Research (Bundesministerium für Bildung und Forschung, BMBF). This fact sheet series condenses the joint research project findings and presents them consistently in the project design.
- Fact sheet 1: Plastic Packaging – What are the possibilities for reducing waste when buying clothes?
- Fact sheet 2: Valuable waste plastic – Floating recycling plant recovers plastics before they enter the sea
- Fact sheet 3: Purchasing unpackaged products – Results of a customer survey
- Fact sheet 4: Tracer-Based Sorting with Fluorescent Tracers – Efficient and flexible sorting of plastic packaging
- Fact sheet 5.1: Removing microplastics from industrial wastewater – Process improvements through the use of flocculants
- Fact sheet 5.2: Evaluation of treatment processes for the removal of microplastics from industrial wastewater – A comparison of processes based on different criteria using benefit analysis
- Fact sheet 6: Recycling PET packaging – Innovative PET recycling of multilayer composites
- Fact sheet 7.1: Microplastics around dams – How do plastic particles behave in reservoirs?
- Fact sheet 7.2: Microplastics in the aquatic food web – Impact and transfer analysis based on the example of roundworms (nematodes)
- Fact sheet 8: Biodegradability of bioplastics – Correct disposal depends on a number of factors
- Fact sheet 9: Transport of microplastics in rivers – Microplastic input into the Baltic Sea via the Warnow River
- Fact sheet 11: Microplastics in wastewater treatment – Development of sampling and analysis methods for detection of input quantities into surface waters
