International Conference MICRO2018

In Lanzarote, Spain

Cedre attended the international conference MICRO2018 which took place from 19th to 24th November in Lanzarote, Spain.

This conference brought together some 500 scientists, mainly from Europe, to discuss subjects related to microplastics such as their distribution, degradation and impact in the marine environment, as well as the impact of nanoplastics on marine organisms and the question of inputs from rivers and the atmosphere.

Particular attention was paid to methodological issues and analysis techniques.

Cedre presented the approach selected by France for monitoring microplastics on beaches under the MSFD, with a focus on the sediment sampling protocol in the field.
