NANO-CARRIERS

Micro and NANOplastics as CARRIERS for the spread of chemicals and antibiotic resistance in the aquatic envirnment An estimated 300 million tons of plastic were produced worldwide in 2015, and this number keeps increasing. This has resulted in a widely acknowledged presence of plastic debris of all sizes in the aquatic environment. The NANO-CARRIERS project will study the threat related to the plastics at the micro and nanometric size emitted through wastewater treatment plants to be trojan horses for chemicals and antibiotic resistance genes into aquatic ecosystems.
