Some good news for the environment! The regulators are moving on Microplastics, and there is more to come!
The EU Commission is taking action on the "intentional" #Microplastics that are included in products like cosmetics and detergents. This is a long and slow process, and not everyone is happy - https://lnkd.in/eT7gx5gF, but at least they are moving in the right direction!
The next step is for action on what they call "unintentional" #Microplasticemissions from #Paint, Tyres, Textiles and Pellets. We all look forward to seeing DG ENV's report on regulatory measures to stop emissions from these sources of Microplastics, hopefully by the end of 2022.
Remember, research from EA - Environmental Action in February, 2022 found that Paint is the biggest source of Microplastic Emissions into the #Ocean. #PaintIsPlastic
The EU Commission wants to realise the objective in the #GreenDeal to reduce Microplastic Emissions into the Environment by 30% by 2030.
Pinovo is playing its part to achieve this target with its clean blasting technology for surface treatment. If you are not doing so already, why not "Follow" Pinovo on LinkedIn to see how an Ocean Impact company from Bergen, Norway can have an impact on a big Environmental problem like Paint Microplastic Pollution!
