NETmicroplastic will establish an international network of experts and stakeholders in the field of microplastic research in agricultural soils and technological solutions to microplastic pollution, elaborating on harmonized methodologies for sample extraction and microplastic quantification to compare abundance of microplastic in different regions. Technological solutions in this network focus on sustainable alternatives to nondegradable conventional plastic (e.g., PE, PP) mainly biopolymers and bioplastics, such as PLA or starch-based blends.
