New Article of CRC 1357

The Nature Communications article by the research group led by Prof. Laforsch and Prof. Kress shows that not all microplastics are the same and that nominally identical particles behave differently.  ...more

Rasterelektronenmikropkoisches Bild der elektrogesponnen Filter

New CRC 1357 Publication

Electrospinning is an innovative method for producing environmentally friendly filter membranes for wastewater treatment. By using sustainable biopolymers, these membranes can achieve high filtration efficiency in the removal of microplastic particles from water and air.  ...more

The first experiment in the newly created aquatic mesocosms at the university under the direction of Dr Gilfedder has started. The article presents the experiments with fluorescent microplastic particles, the researchers and their expectations.  ...more

Mikroskopieaufnahme von Zellen und fluoersziernden Partikeln

New CRC 1357 Publication

Are there differences in the uptake and cytotoxic effects of pure microparticles from synthetic polymers and polymers from biological sources? Julia Jasinski and her co-authors have investigated this for PE, PS, PVC, polylactide and cellulose acetate.  ...more

Foto Windkanal

New CRC 1357 Publication

Do microplastic particles differ from mineral particles when exposed to wind? Eike Esders and co-authors have investigated this in more detail using idealized wind tunnel studies on PE microspheres and thus clarified important principles of atmospheric transport.  ...more

Mikroskopieaufnahme Rußtaupilz

New CRC 1357 Publication

This study indicates a plastiphilic lifestyle of sooty molds (Capnodeum coffeae), despite the low utilization of plastic as a carbon source. The study proposes new standards to identify and unequivocally demonstrate the plastic-degrading capabilities of microbes.  ...more
