Arte Re: CRC 1357 Microplastic

The Arte reportage series "Re:" tells people's stories - authentically and up close. This episode is about microplastics and the Collaborative Research Centre CRC 1357 at the University of Bayreuth.  ...more

New Press Release

For wall and ceiling paints, mostly emulsion paints are used that contain many solid micro- or nanometre-sized particles. These can harm living organisms. Newly developed membranes can filter these particles out of the water before they enter the environment.  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

Interactions of microplastic particles with environmental components depend on their surface morphology and functionality. Here we present a home-build polariser which boosts the sensitivity of 129Xe NMR spectroscopic experiments by five orders of magnitude, turning 129Xe NMR spectroscopy into a promising technique for MP surface characterisation. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication

In many cases, the sedimentation of MP is accelerated by aggreagtion with other substances. A major impact on the transport of MP is that the kinetics of aggregation are decisive in the formation of heteroaggregates from iron(oxy)hydroxides. Congratulations!  ...more

New CRC 1357 press release:

How does flooding influence the abundance of microplastic in floodplains? New insights about how input pathways, spatial distribution, and local topography influence in the new CRC 1357 publication in Science of the Total Environment. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

Microplastic extraction from environmental samples is a critical task in the analytical workflow from sampling to quantification. Unfortunately, some extraction methods also degrade microplastic. The new publication gives essential insights into best extraction practices. Congratulation!  ...more

New CRC 1357 publication:

How can the turnover of reactive solutes or small particulate substances like microplastic be described in the riparian zone? Here we present new insights into water source variation and mixing at a river's land–water interface. Congratulation!  ...more

Collaborative Research Centre 1357 Microplastics

The Collaborative Research Centre (SFB) 1357: "Microplastics - Understanding the mechanisms and processes of biological effects, transport and formation: From model to complex systems as a basis for new solutions" investigates the formation, migration and effects of microplastics and develops new approaches to solving this immense environmental problem.
