SAM group publishes opinion on risks of microplastic pollution
On 30 April 2018, the Group of Chief Scientific Advisors handed over their Opinion on the Environmental and Health Risks of Microplastic Pollution to the Commission. In its sixth scientific opinion, the group makes recommendations on how the EU together with other global policy actors should respond to microplastic pollution based on state-of-the-art scientific knowledge and insights.
The opinion was triggered by the ongoing worldwide debate on how to solve plastic – and in particular microplastic – pollution. It responds to the need for science and science advice to play a more prominent and helpful role in this debate.TOP
