Plastic Waste

Researchers at the Lund University have made new discoveries that plastic waste in the environment degenerates into nano-sized particles called ‘nanoplastics’. In order to mimic the degradation of plastic in the ocean, the researcher subjected takeaway coffee cup lids to mechanical breakdown. Most of the marine debris is plastic and calculations have revealed that around 10 percent of all plastic produced worldwide ends up in the sea. Such plastic waste
