Development of Micro- and Nanoplastics Reference Materials under metrological criteria
The aim of this work package is to develop Micro- and Nanoplastics Reference Materials that mimic real Microplastics particles, with relevant polymer type, shapes, sizes and degradation status, as found in food and in the environment.
Development of routine Analytical Methods for Microplastics in food and environmental samples
The aim of this work package is the development and harmonisation of procedures (including sample preparation) for the characterisation of small Microplastics (100 – 10 µm) (particle number, polymer type, particle mass fraction and surface morphology) in complex food and environmental matrices.
Development and Validation of innovative characterisation methods for Small Micro- and Nanoplastics
The aim of this work package is to develop sample preparation strategies and measurement methods for small Microplastics (< 10 µm) and Nanoplastics (< 0.1 µm) in food related samples (drinking water and milk).
