2,000 tonnes of microplastic on Italian beaches


Pisa, July 12 - There may be as much as 2,000 tonnes
of microplastic on Italian beaches, Pisa university chemistry
department researchers said Thursday in the first study of its
kind in Italy.
They spoke after examining samples of sand from the mouth of
Arno and the Serchio.
The researchers found a large quantity of polymers, up to
5-10 grammes per square metre, deriving mostly from packaging or
single-use objects washed up on the shores.
The total estimate is between one thousand and two thousand
tonnes of microplatic.
