June 21st, 2024

Presentation by Associate Professor Maryam Naebe (Deakin University)

However, there is little understanding about characteristics of these microplastics and exactly how and why they are generated. This talk briefly describes our recent progress on systematic method for sampling and identifying microplastics in textiles washing wastewater.
