Macro and Micro-Plastic litter and increased Covid-19 based plastic pollution in the aquatic environment: analysis, effects, rimediation and policy solutions

This presentation will cover, in the first part, different aspects of Micro-Plastics (MPs) and Macro-Plastic litter pollution in coastal waters, waste waters, rivers, sediments and lakes. Case studies of MPs pollution in several coastal environments, sediments and catchments of China, Saudi Arabia, India, Mexico, Europe and Australia will be reported. The second part will be devoted to plastic litter and its increase use under COVID-19 outbreak. This is related to an excessive use and consumption of single-use plastics, including personal protective equipment, masks and gloves. This presentation aims to provide an integrative and insightful overview on the effects of COVID-19 on MPs pollution and its potential implications
on the environment and human health. Lastly, remediation strategies and policy solutions to mitigate the global MPs problem will be addressed.
