Hinzmann, Mandy; Knoblauch, Doris; Mederake, Linda; Schritt, Hannes; Stein, Ulf (eds.) (2022): Kernbotschaften zum Forschungsschwerpunkt "Plastik in der Umwelt".

The publication summarizes the key messages from all 20 joint research projects and the seven cross-cutting topics of the research focus. Structured along the following ten main topics, the central results are presented in order to derive recommendations for various addressees:

  1. Sources and pathways of plastics in the environment
  2. Ecotoxicological assessment of microplastics as a complex task
  3. Plastics in wastewater: detection, investigation, removal
  4. Plastics in soils: inputs, behavior and fate
  5. Companies need to take more responsibility
  6. Not yet efficient enough: waste management and recycling
  7. How municipalities can help to reduce plastic emissions
  8. Limited options: What influence do consumers have?
  9. Significant progress in microplastics analysis
  10. Legal recommendations for reducing plastic emissions

More than 70 researchers and practitioners from across the research focus have jointly co-authored the key messages.

The key findings from five years of research in 20 projects and seven cross-cutting topics, condensed into 50 pages.
