Two radio reports on the EU ban on microplastics


Both Hessischer Rundfunk (HR) and Südwestdeutscher Rundfunk (SWR) interview Dr Martin Löder on the EU ban on microplastics in individual products.

Dr. Martin Löder, Group Leader Microplastics, gave two radio interviews on this and evaluates these measures:
