Call for laboratories to participate in proficiency tests on microplastics in drinking water and sediments
Jul 08 2019

The JRC, together with the German Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), is launching a call for expert laboratories, to participate in the proficiency tests on specific microplastics in water (bottled water, drinking water) and polyethylene in sediments.

Background

Microplastics and possibly also nanoplastics, are becoming widely spread throughout the environment. 

Concerns are growing that they may present a risk to the environment and human health via contamination of water, food, soil and air.

The majority of the global population currently live in urban areas, and this is expected to increase in the future.

The importance and role of cities is increasing recognised - the future of cities will greatly impact all of our futures.

Our report "The future of cities - opportunities, challenges and the way forward" highlights the main challenges faced by cities and the people living within them currently and towards the future.

It also discusses some of the tools cities can use to face those challenges.

It covers, among other issues:
