Microplastics in consumer and industrial products
The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has submitted a restriction proposal for microplastic particles that are intentionally added to mixtures used by consumers or professionals, which would greatly affect the polymeric particle use in controlled release/encapsulation technology in the consumer and industrial products. What are the key definitions of microplastics? What are the products that will be regulated? Come to learn the status of the regulation, the methods to measure biodegradability, and several solutions that can offer sustainable encapsulation technologies.
