LABPLAS project start-up

The digital bulletin of the University of Vigo, duvi, echoes the start of the European project LABPLAS that, led by UVigo, will track the origin of the plastic present in the environment with the ultimate goal of "reducing the entry of plastics into the environment" . The field work will be carried out in the North Sea, the Elbe (Germany) and Thames (England) rivers and around the Cecebre reservoir (Galicia).

With a budget of 5 million Euros, four years in duration and 16 partners from eight countries, LABPLAS will be coordinated by the UVigo professor and director of ECOTOX, Ricardo Beiras.
