TOWARDS AN ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF MICROPLASTIC – OPTIMIZATION OF MONITORING METHODS AND TEST BATTERY FOR ECOTOXICOLOGY TESTING

TOWARDS AN ENVIRONMENTAL RISK ASSESSMENT OF MICROPLASTIC – OPTIMIZATION OF MONITORING METHODS AND TEST BATTERY FOR ECOTOXICOLOGY TESTING

MICRO-OPT will develop a framework using a combination of relevant microplastic (MP) materials, exposure concentrations, test species and eco-toxicological endpoints. The project will provide the tools to produce the missing effects data, that are necessary to enable effective hazard evaluation for risk assessment of MP pollution levels in Norwegian marine ecosystems
