A new report, published by the Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC), has taken a stab at summarizing the state of applied MP science. It discusses what is known about MP sources, distribution and environmental transport, as well as techniques and best practices for sampling and analyzing MPs. The report also outlines what is known about their risk to human health and ecosystems and provides an overview of the regulatory context.
