Great to see that important European Industrial companies are also switching to sustainable methods of surface treatment!
These research findings show we need more scientific study to really understand the health impact of #microplastics on humans, animals and fish, and also its impact on plant life, and there is also an urgent need for regulators to act to raise public awareness of the sources of #microplastic #pollution, including #paint!
Over to you #eucommission!
And remember #PaintIsPlastic
A new study has shown how microplastics can infiltrate the blood-brain barrier of mice.
The research team conducted an experiment in which MPs of 2 micrometers or less in size were administered orally to mice for 7 days to elucidate the hazards of microplastics.
They discovered that nano-plastics with the size of 2 micrometers or less even passed through the blood-brain barrier that prevents the brain uptake of hazardous substances.

Recognition of #microplastics as #PlasticPollution in the UNEA 5.2 Resolution in Nairobi was a "game changer"!
Pinovo, the clean blasting solution to Ocean Paint Microplastic Pollution, is delighted to endorse the Vision of the Business Coalition for a Global Plastics Treaty, with its objective to prevent and remediate microplastic leakage into the environment. See our quote in the press release - https://lnkd.in/gZAieq4y
Today we join Ellen MacArthur Foundation, WWF, and 80+ other organizations in calling for an effective & ambitious UN Global Plastics Treaty. We are looking forward to collaborating with the other members of the Coalition to support the development of an effective and legally binding UN treaty to end plastic pollution.
We urge all stakeholders to support this important project to help develop a strong global plastics treaty.
