Nanoplastics : this invisible waste

To get an idea of the consequences of plastics & nanoplastics in the oceans, see the video on the website of the CNRS Journal: nanoplastics, the hidden face of global pollution

This is a video/photo report with Mélanie Davranche and Julien Gigault, from the team NanoBioGeochemistry (NBG - rennes geosciences) on the project PEPSEA "nanoparticles of plastics in the environment: source, impact and prediction" on which are working Geosciences Rennes and other laboratories.
