B24 – Modeling exposure and biodistribution of microplastic particles in the human body

Aim of this project is to develop a human exposure probabilistic modelling framework for microplastics, and to collect input data for scenario analyses and validation. The framework will be flexible so as to enable implementation of updates as key processes […]

ECO59 : FRAGMENT-MNP: Developing a mechanistic model of Micro and NanoPlastic FRAGMentation in the ENvironmenT

The overarching objective of this project is to develop and deliver a pragmatic open-source mechanistic model of how environmental factors affect plastic fragmentation and degradation rates. The model will be applicable across a range of conditions in multiple environmental compartments. […]

ECO58 : Comprehensive additive release and bioaccessibility model for risk assessment of micro- and nano-plastics in the environment

The ubiquitous occurrence of plastics in natural waters1, 2 is a consequence of vast and increasing utilization of synthetic polymers in commercial, industrial, and consumer applications. While the implications of continuous ecological exposure to plastic particles in the nano- to […]

C10 : A Tiered Strategy to Assess Microplastic Inhalation

The LRI C10 project aims to develop better tools for the identification of the inhalation toxicity of microplastics of different origin/with different properties. Humans are ubiquitously exposed to microplastics; this includes a diverse class of compounds/particles but also very different […]

ECO57 : μPLANET – microPlastic Long-range transport Assessment aNd Estimation Tools

Recent research has highlighted the apparent ubiquity of plastic debris, including Microplastic Particles (MPs), across the planet and particularly in the oceans. The release of MPs to the environment represents a particular concern given their resistance to degradation. The continuous […]
