Pinovo welcomes the latest research by Dr. Andrew Turner of University of Plymouth on #Microplastics found in Plankton Trawls in the North Atlantic. Key conclusions:
- After fibres, Paint Particles may be the most abundant type of Microplastics in the Ocean.
- Metallic additives (Lead, Copper, Chromium, Iron, Titanium and Zinc) from Paint were found in those Ocean Microplastics
We need to develop and use sustainable methods for surface protection and treatment, such as Pinovo's Clean Circular Vacuum Blasting!
